Immensely popular, the turtleneck has a wide following. Steve Jobs’ signature attire deserves a place in your wardrobe. Joe Col is a timeless and comfortable turtleneck that does not scratch and never makes you feel you’re choking. This turtleneck is made of 100% superfine Merino wool. Read more about our turtleneck, the qualities of Merino wool and choose from one of our 20 colours.
The Turtleneck: A Fashion Classic
If you think that the iconic CEO of tech giant Apple has made the turtleneck great, think again. The special pullover with the rolled neck is a true fashion classic. Fun fact: the very first turtlenecks can be traced back as far as the Middle Ages, when knights wore this type of pullover beneath their coats of mail (granted, we had to look this up). The roll neck protected them against the itchy iron. Over time the turtleneck kept popping up in the streets. From a protest against shirts and ties in the twenties of the last century, to a fashion item for women in the fifties led by style icons like Marilyn Monroe. Widely embraced these days, the turtleneck has become an item that everyone should have in their wardrobe.
Turtleneck for All
The best thing about a turtleneck is its versality. Wear a turtleneck with a jacket, and you will feel cool, smooth and self-confident. Or dress down in the weekends, and pair a turtleneck with a matching jeans! Joe Col is available in no less than 20 different colours. Take Copper Canyon: a warm rusty red with a tinge of orange, reminiscent of the sand in a Mexican desert. If you are a dreamer (and as you can imagine, you’re not the only one…) Joe Col Mythos Blue is for you, a light hue of blue with a touch of green. But our Joe Col of course also comes in various grey and blue tones or Steve Jobs’ signature black!
A Turtleneck of Merino Wool
Joe Col is 100% made of superfine wool of the Merino sheep. Most Merino sheep can be found in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Argentina. Besides being incredibly comfortable, this type of wool has more advantages. It breathes, it is strong, antibacterial and regulates temperature. Moreover, Merino wool is 100% natural, which makes it fully recyclable and biodegradable.
Merino Wool Turtleneck Care Instructions
Your Merino wool Joe Col needs a little more TLC than its cotton counterparts. Don’t worry, there’s no need to fill the basin and do some hand washing. All Joes happily go into the machine, as long as you set the washer to 30 degrees and a spin cycle of 600 maximum.
But you don’t have to wash your Joe Col (or any other Joe for that matter) that often. The antibacterial qualities of Merino wool keep your Joe Col fresh without the need for washing. Just air your Joe Col overnight and in the morning it will be ready to roll again!
