If you are cold today, Body Bark is the best!

Body Bark turtleneckSince Linda’s Body Bark turtleneck arrived, she’s rarely taken it off. When I saw the advertisement, I knew she would love this comfortable and warm piece of clothing that can be worn solo or under clothing. It is particularly great for outdoors people. I also like the fact it is made in the United States.

Linda is a first grade teacher, and has to go outside for recess with her kids a couple of times a day, unless the wind-chill temperature dips below 5 degrees. So she’s really appreciating the warmth of her Body Bark Turtleneck. I’d guess that every Maine teacher ought to have a couple of these! Especially considering the morning temps this week have ranged from 8 to 16 below zero!

Here’s what Linda has to say about this product.

Body Bark Turtlenecks have made my winter much more tolerable. I am drawn to them because they are lightweight, not bulky, but at the same time incredibly warm. They are thin enough to be comfortable under a sweater, but I find I don’t always need another layer with these amazing shirts!

The material has a luxurious feel and I love the fit as well. I look forward to trying some of their styles more suitable for warmer weather!

Ok, I see she is angling for more Body Bark products. I will take note of that!

Body Bark is actually an entire line of clothing accessories including crews, tees, and turtlenecks. So this could fill my need for gifts for my wife for quite some time.

Color choices include black, white, and natural, plus java, slate gray, navy, and jewel tones such as red and fuchsia purple. And all of the products are made from sustainable beech wood fiber.

You can find Body Bark products in boutiques throughout the state and online at www.BodyBark.com.
