It feels like yesterday when we put all our winter clothes back in the closet to prepare for summer, but the days are shortening and fall is quickly approaching, which means that soon we’ll be able to break out our coziest sweaters for comfort and style this season.
The good thing about sweaters is that you can throw them on for any event or activity all year round, thanks to its versatile design in timeless patterns and mostly neutral colours. They can also be dressed up or down with an occasional bright accent and still look great with your favourite pair of jeans, sneakers, and boots.
With a wide variety of styles available this year, wool and cotton mixes are still widely used, but eco-friendly alternatives are becoming more accessible, too. It’s no secret that the fashion business is harmful to the environment, since their carbon footprint accounts for nearly 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
More needs to be done, from raising awareness about sustainable fashion practices to changing purchasing behaviour throughout the retail industry..
So, by getting yourself or your loved ones a long-lasting, waste-reducing cozy sweater this season will show your appreciation both for that special someone and for the planet.
Here are our favourite pieces for the new season for your next closet must-haves!

Blending functionality and sophistication is this Super Soft Rib Cardigan, which is knitted from an extremely soft wool and cashmere blend. Being able to be worn on both sides, with a button fastening and a V-neckline in the front or rear and is available in black, biscotta cream, and rose of your choice.

Their cardigans are primarily made in Europe, a choice that decreases the environmental impact of transportation while also ensuring good European labour conditions.
Plus, almost all of the fabrics ZENNGI uses are made by innovative producers in Italy and Japan that frequently keep in touch with them for a long time for suggestions on how to make goods that are more sustainable at higher quality.
ARTKNIT: The Wool Vintage V-neck For Him
For every man who adores something classic yet classy, this Wool Vintage V-neck works for everything from autumn nights out, office lunches, and cozy winter weekends.
Through their direct-to-consumer business strategy, Artknit was created under the sign of innovation and sustainability to dramatically cut CO2 emissions along their supply chain.
By avoiding all middlemen and intermediates and using natural yarns that have a low environmental impact, all materials are spun by approved mills in the heart of the Italian wool valley, Biella, which is local to their headquarters.
Re-Born Eco-Cashmere Sweaters
Many fast fashion companies trick the producer into believing that a valuable raw material, like cashmere, can be obtained cheaply.
As a result, these companies have infiltrated the market with low-cost goods over the years, leading to an oversupply of low-cost raw resources from overgrazed pastures . The combing technique is used on animals without regard for their well-being.
But believe it or not, this unisex cashmere sweater is a revolution that adds gentle volumes and fundamental and variable lines that shape her and him without distinction.
Because Re-Born is a line of cashmere clothing by Tasselli Cashmere derived from both recycled raw materials, high-quality disused garments carded and spun into extraordinarily warm and soft knitwear reconditioning in accordance with circular economy concepts.
