Turtle & the Hare
A turtleneck should be in every runner's cold weather rotation. It's a winter classic because of the way it adds neck protection from stiff winds and provides extra comfort when donning tall jacket collars. However, the high pile fleece and heavy cotton styles that usually adorn the ski slopes were never meant for running. Our Fells Turtleneck refreshes the style with a soft, lightweight Merino wool honeycomb that resists odors and wicks sweat. Thumbholes add versatility on colder days.
This rugged Merino wool blend regulates temperature, wicks moisture, and resists odor, even after multiple wears without washing.
A double-layered turtleneck collar finished with felled seams delivers surprising performance in a classic silhouette.

Less Rolling Resistance
Turtlenecks have been worn by sportsmen since the 19th century, but they’ve lost touch with performance in recent years. And that’s a shame, since the silhouette is inherently warm and versatile. Our Merino wool blend delivers on all counts. It’s temperature-regulating, odor-repelling and dries in a flash, with the comfort and easy-going style of a turtleneck you’d pair with jeans. The waffle-like texture helps move air and moisture while running, and ensures this shirt feels light as air. Updated for 2023, we reduced the bulk around the neck to maintain everything we love about this layer, while eliminating any distractions during the run.
Merino is Magic
If you’re still not familiar with the performance benefits of Merino wool, be prepared for a revelation. Soft and not at all scratchy, Merino wicks moisture and regulates temperature just like animal hair (because it sort of is). It’s almost completely impervious to odor and stays warm even when it’s wet. The Fells takes advantage of a honeycomb jacquard knit. Similar to a waffle knit pattern, it helps trap warm air close to the body and provides insulation without clinging.
From the Fells
Our Fells pieces are inspired by cross country’s wet and wild cousin: fell running. Facing challenging courses and unpredictable British weather, fell runners have long relied on wool clothing to keep them warm and protected in tough conditions.
