Turtlenecks at Epplejeck
Treat yourself to a cosy turtleneck for autumn and winter at Epplejeck. Turtlenecks have different names, depending on where you live, like: polo neck, roll neck, skivvy, and mock neck, but they all boil down to a similar garment: a long-sleeve shirt or sweater with a higher neck that keeps you warm and comfy. The term turtleneck is, unsurprisingly, derived 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 knights wore them to make their chain mail feel more comfortable. Since then, the turtleneck has become a staple piece in the fashion industry.
While summer may not be the season for wearing turtlenecks, winter certainly is! The high collar keeps your neck warm and draught-free. You may wear scarves to remedy a cold neck and stiff shoulders, but they can be rather impractical on horseback or when you’re mucking out stables or grooming your horse. Turtlenecks are the perfect alternative to scarves. They keep your neck warm, but don’t get in your way. Turtleneck sweaters are therefore the perfect layer to wear under your jacket during the colder months!
