Turtlenecks at Epplejeck
Get yourself a cosy turtleneck for fall and winter at Epplejeck. Turtlenecks may have many different names depending on where you are from - polo neck, roll-neck, skivvy, mock neck - but they are all the same: a longsleeve shirt or sweater with a higher neck to keep you comfy and warm. The name comes, unsurprisingly from the neck of a turtle coming out of its shell. The animal's neck is long and wrinkly, and so is a sweater with a turtleneck. Turtlenecks actually date back to at least the 15th century when nights used to wear them to make wearing chainmail more comfortable. Since then, the turtleneck clothing has become a staple piece in the fashion industry.
While summer may not be the season for wearing turtlenecks, they are perfect for the winter time! The high neck prevents your neck from getting cold and keeps the wind out more than a normal shirt or sweater would. If you're prone to getting a cold neck or becoming tense in your neck and shoulder area due to the cold, you would probably wear a scarf whenever you can. But scarves can be incredibly impractical and irritating when you're riding or even working around the stable, for example mucking out or grooming a horse. Turtlenecks are the perfect replacement. They still keep your neck warm, but without being so chunky or constantly being in your way. The perfect layer to wear under your jacket during the colder months!
