Into the Headwind
The turtleneck is a winter classic for a reason. Warm and versatile, it offers neck protection and helps prevent chafing from high jacket collars in stiff winds. Our NDO version is delivered in a soft, lightweight Merino wool honeycomb jacquard with a wind-blocking panel for added protection against the elements. Wear it alone on more temperate, but windy days, or under a mid-layer or jacket for extra warmth where it matters on your core.
Turtlenecks have been worn by sportsmen since the 19th century, but they’ve lost touch with performance in recent years. And that’s a shame, since the silhouette is inherently warm and versatile. Our Merino wool blend delivers on all counts. It’s temperature-regulating, odor-repelling and dries in a flash. The waffle-like texture helps move air and moisture while running, and ensures this shirt feels light as air. The windblocking overlay is sewn on top of our waffle knit fabric, offering protection from headwinds while the Merino wool sits warmly and comfortably against your skin.
Merino is Magic
If you’re still not familiar with the performance benefits of Merino wool, be prepared for a revelation. Soft and not at all scratchy, Merino wicks moisture and regulates temperature just like animal hair (because it sort of is). It’s almost completely impervious to odor and stays warm even when it’s wet. The Fells takes advantage of a honeycomb jacquard knit. Similar to a waffle knit pattern, it helps trap warm air close to the body and provides insulation without clinging.
