When I began the search for knitwear without wool (or other animal fibers), I found so many options I decided to divide and conquer. You can see my picks for pullovers here. This post will feature wool-free cardigans.
As with pullovers, I’ve looked for styles with primarily silk and/or plant-based fibers, either cotton or other cellulose-based synthetics (Tencel, viscose).
Starting off with something simple, I’ve long been a fan of Eileen Fisher’s silk-cotton interlock fabric. The fabric itself has nice body and drapes well. Here’s the same style in Plus, offered in two shades of blue.

An easy take on the belted cardigan, this one is also on sale.
This one’s reversible, basically doubling your styling options.
Here’s a classic houndstooth that can go from work to weekend. This shorter length is nice to pair with skirts or wider-leg trousers.
