    I really like this sweater. The neck is not too tight, the material feels great. It's not thin but it's not too thick for wearing under other sweaters. I find wool to scratchy so I prefer a silk or cashmere blend. The quality seems good and I just washed it and it held up fine.

    Knowing your size works well for August Silk apparel. I've purchased from local department stores as well as Sierra Trading Post and am very pleased with this sweater.

    Flattering fit with ample sleeve length for my broad shoulders and longish arms (size small: 5 ft 5 in, 124 lbs). Sizing true, not tight. Polished look. Easy care. Rich colors. Have to see how shape holds up over time. Great deal.

    I have a number of these now and got the blue. They blend of silk and synthetic menas you get a slight sheen, a small gauge and you can wear them to work under a jacket when it is cold. They are sleek and have always held up well with hand washing and lay flat to dry. Really much more resilient than a pricier silk blend version I got at a specialty store.

    I buy these when I can. The silk blend means that they are soft, lightweight, but stronger because of the synthetic. They are smooth enough to wear with a dress suit.

    I'm pleased with this turtleneck, mostly due to it's somewhat dressy look, suitable for wearing to work. It runs true to size - I usually fill out a size 12, and the Large fits nicely. The knit is soft and a little glossy, as you'd expect from a garment with silk. I knocked it down to 4 stars because it tends to wrinkle quite a lot. Also, I need to keep it away from anything rough, or it gets tiny snags.

    I ordered 6 of the August Silk Turtlenecks. 3 are excellent quality, though they pick very easily. The remaining three came apart at the seams between the neck and shoulder the first time I put them on. There is so little fabric that sewing the area is impossible. I really wanted to like these, but 50% defective is bad quality.

    I love silk and nice products. I bought 4 of these turtlenecks because of their appearance and the great price. I've put on 3 out of the four. The turtleneck detached from the body of the shirt on two of these the first time I put them on. I have a normal sized head and a skinny neck. Do not buy unless you are a seamstress. Very, very poorly constructed.

    I have pretty sensitive skin, but the fabric felt itchy. It would probably work if you wore a layer underneath. The size was about right.

    I purchased this in purple and light blue. Material was thinner than I had anticipated so I'll wear it under jackets or another 2nd layer. The first time I took it off, the seam at the armhole ripped. I would not purchase this again.
