The ultimate black turtle neck jumper

Or roll neck, not sure what the difference is. I am after a longline fitted but not clingy turtle neck black knit top. I was hoping for cashmere on the sales but I can't find anything on my size (small 10) for no more than £100. Has anyone seen anything that's black, size 10 and it is not made of 100% wool? (too hot for work) Cheers.

Not quite what you are looking for but I have just ordered this

You have described the holy grail item!! What I have ordered is the closest I could get smile

I've been looking for the perfect one for years. The merino ones at Uniqlo are excellent (though 100% merino) I am a 12 and wear an XL so they're not too fitted.

Thanks. In Uniqlo I'd need an XS or S and they have absolutely nothing left in black in those sizes.

The Jaeger one is beautiful but not quite what I'm after. If I'm a size 10 (small 10, but size 8 would be clingy on my love handles), what size would I be in Jaeger? XS, S or M?

I'll let you know how the sizing is in the Jaeger one when I get it - I'm a 12 and I ordered the M. I think their sizing runs large and I don't want it to be too fitted.

Turtle neck is that halfway house between a crew neck and a polo/roll neck. They can look v odd.

Polo / roll

Turtleneck is just what the Americans call a polo neck.

Oh I thought polo, turtle and roll neck were all interchangeable!! It's definitely polo/roll that I want.

The Woolovers jumper is nice but doesn't look fitted enough; lots of surplus material on the sleeves?

£11 over budget, but cashmere..

Thanks, it's nice everything but not fitted unfortunately
