A soft, snuggly sweater is a wardrobe-must come fall. Sure, a fleece coat or denim jacket may help keep you warm, too, but nothing beats the feeling of slipping on a well-loved sweater or sweatshirt and heading out the door–or settling onto the couch for a night of cozy relaxation (hello, Hygge). Some of my favorite sweaters are nearly a decade old (and I will never-ever let them go!), but there’s still room in my heart for fresh threads, i.e. sweaters sans worn cuffs and shapeless necks. And if you love sweater weather as much as I do, you may be on the hunt for a new sweater, too.
To help all of us fall-addicts, I’ve compiled a list of several ethically produced sweaters and sweatshirts created by conscious brands with vegan materials, including organic cotton, linen, recycled material, and tencel. Adding an extra layer never felt so good! Keep scrolling to find your new favorite sweater.
