The WWF has declared it National Sweater Day! So, in honor of this day, we've picked six great sweaters from sustainably-minded companies. Maybe one of these will inspire you to bundle up and turn down the heat.
Part of Alternative's Made in Peru collection, this super soft hoodie-style sweater is great for layering. It's made from 100 percent organic cotton.
We love this long cardigan because it's so versatile. You can pair it with jeans, or wrap it all the way around and make it a dress. It's made in the U.S. from surplus fabric.
This sweater from Nau is quick-drying and soft. I like the thumb hole detail on the sleeve, for a little bit of added warmth. It's made from a blend of Merino wool and Tencel, a natural fiber derived from eucalyptus trees. Plus, Nau uses wool certified by ZQUE, which ensures that sheep are not mistreated.
Ok, I'm calling this wool felt cape a sweater, but I know that's a bit of a stretch. This statement piece could be an outer garment or a super-warm addition to your outfit. It's made in Brooklyn to last a lifetime.
1) The one that's already in your closet!
Obviously, you don't need to buy anything to celebrate sweater day. The most sustainable sweater is the one you already have. I bet most of our readers have a warm woolly garment they can pull on right now, like this happy hand-me-down from a friend.
