It all started with someone accidentally searching turtle sweater instead of turtleneck. Now, dressed-up turtles are taking the Internet by storm, and the cuteness is too much to stand.
If you’re one of those people who can work magic with a crochet hook and and a ball of yarn, then you can make a whole reptile closet full of turtle sweaters once you find a pattern you like.
If you make a giant tangled-up mess when you try to crochet (like I do), then buying a turtle sweater that someone else crafted is most likely more appealing to you.
But where do you find such a unique item?
Your local pet store? Well, maybe, but it’s rather unlikely.
When looking for something unique and handmade, it hardly ever fails to go to Etsy.com, so I went there first.
And what would you know? I found turtle and tortoise sweaters!
The sweaters range in price from $14.99 to $25.00, and they come in a variety of styles. Whether you just want a basic, solid color sweater for your reptile friend, or you want to help break the Internet with a shark fin, taco, piggy, or even a dinosaur sweater, you are bound to find a turtle or tortoise sweater that fits your fancy.
There are a few different turtle/tortoise sweater shops on Etsy, but TheCozyTortoise has the most variety. See some of the shop’s creations below!
