I purchased the retro wine/burgundy color to wear casually with jeans or cords. The knit is fine, not coarse. But on me the fit is shapeless. It is a turtleneck to wear on a Friday night at home or for pizza out on a Saturday. I do believe a taller, rangier woman could look svelte in this turtleneck. I am 5'3", 117#, wear a 34B bra, waist 27, hips 36-37.Alway a Petite. The sleeves are necessarily foldable on me. I will absolutely not wash this by hand and block flat to dry. If the fit was stunning, I might. I will wash on cool/warm, dry for 10 minutes, hang and smooth on hanger. I did this with silk ribbed turtlenecks from anther maker and they shrunk 2" in sleeve and body length. I expect the same. The folded tneck is not too tall for me. I am sensitive to this, being small.

August Silk is reliable: stylish yet conservative, and the colors are gorgeous. This is a flexible all-purpose turtleneck that will dress up with nice slacks or dress relaxed with jeans. The fabric is light enough to handle a woolen cardigan over it for the really cold days.
