Reader Question: Turtleneck Scrunchiness
You said you went through a lot of white turtlenecks before you found the right amount of scrunchiness. So, what kind of turtlenecks are they?
Nothing opens one up to ridicule (and more than partially justified) when making things explicit that perhaps are best left implicit! Having said that...
For wearing with thinner sweaters, like this Ralph Lauren Lambswool Cableknit crewneck in the picture above (where I can't afford the extra bulk, whether from the cut or the heftiness of the cotton), I use the LL Bean Pima Cotton Turtleneck.
For wearing with heavier sweaters, I buy the Lands' End Women's Regular Cotton Seamless Neck Turtleneck (Traditional Fit), and I like the ribbed cuffs (see picture below).
The body of my turtlenecks are always 100% cotton, although the Lands' End adds 6% spandex in the neck and cuff.
