Since 1982 Turtle Fur® has been a leading headwear and accessories brand in the outdoor, snow sports and lifestyle markets.
Located just North of Stowe, in the shadows of Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield, we know tough weather. In 1982 Turtle Fur left its first mark on winter with the invention of the fleece neck warmer called "The Turtle's Neck". It was a shift in winter accessories that continues to this day.
The invention of the Original Turtle's Neck freed once scarf-bound skiers from their tangled and burdensome accessories. From The Neck was born The Hat, from The Hat; many more hats. By creating comfortable, quality products, we help you stay outside longer to enjoy the things you love to do. Our mission is to create the best adult and kids’ headwear and outdoor gear you can buy. We pride ourselves on holding true to our roots of quality, comfort, creativity, and community...all while having fun.
Millie Merril invented the first ever fleece neck warmer in the basement of a Stowe, Vermont boutique, called The Yellow Turtle. She would go on to spread the word about her new product to the delight of skiers and outdoor enthusiasts everywhere. Collaborating with her husband, John, in 1991, Millie added products and worked to expand the company until retirement in 2000.
Today Turtle Fur has expanded to sell a robust and ever-encompassing selection of hats, necks, gear, and apparel in many different categories of outdoor wear. Turtle Fur remains a family owned company based in Morrisville, Vermont. The dedicated Turtles who design, test, market, receive and ship our beloved hats, necks and other accessories are committed to assuring the best for our customers.
