Searching For the Elusive…


I have been searching (and searching…) online for this elusive item, this past week.

Why is a simple, basic sweater like this so hard to find?

I couldn’t even find the right style in a different color, to include a photo with this post.

So here are my must-haves for the perfect black “turtle 😉

  1. Fitted, not sloppy looking, with a fitted neck, no cowls.
  2. Preferably a cotton or other natural blend fabric.
  3. Ribbed texture throughout.
  4. Reasonably priced, not over $40.
  5. True black, not mixed colors, marled…
  6. Not too thick but not thin either, medium weight.
  7. Free or reasonable shipping charges.

If you happen to note this kind of pullover sweater online and it is at a site that ships to Canada, please let me know.

I can’t believe I am the only woman searching for a black, ribbed turtleneck right now.

And I can’t believe that I haven’t been able to find what was always considered a winter wardrobe basic, especially here in Canada. 😦

  1. Lands End has nice turtlenecks. This year I see they have a “shaped layering turtleneck,” though it’s not rib-knit, it does’t appear as bulky as in the past. If you sign up for email, they send notices of special pricing/discounts daily. Hope you find something you like!

  2. Thanks Patti, I haven’t checked out their site yet but the RIBBED part is a must! 😉

  3. Having lived in Florida almost all my life I know very little about sweaters. But those tacky Christmas ones are coming out…..Men’s ties too- yuk.

  4. It’s difficult to find a flattering polo or turtle neck, isn’t it?

  5. I hope you find one soon. Hard to understand why this is so hard to find. It is a basic clothing item.

  6. It is hard to find warm winter clothes for women isn’t it? I was talking to my husband the other day how hard it was to find warm socks. Hopefully you find your sweater.

Thanks so much for your comments!
