There are few things more comfortable (and comforting) than a cozy sweater when the weather turns crisp. But many of you have mentioned that you’re allergic or sensitive to wool and/or cashmere, so I’ve embarked on a style hunt for wool-free sweaters.
When I posted a roundup of wool-free sweaters and cardigans last year, it was a popular topic, so I thought I’d update with current styles. For this year’s selection, I wanted to stick with predominantly natural fibers.
- Cotton sweaters (or cotton blends) are relatively easy to find. They’re breathable and often washable, and tend to be more budget-friendly. But many “cotton blends” include some animal fibers, so I’ve done my best to filter those out.
- Silk and silk blends are lighter weight and often have a more refined look, but they are sometimes pricier.
- Tencel is a breathable fabric made from cellulose fibers that’s generally regarded as being a more sustainable choice.
This 100% cotton sweater has such an elegant look! I love that braiding detail on the sleeves. And it’s very reasonably priced!
The subtle jacquard pattern on this cotton-blend sweater adds visual interest. In sizes XX-Small to XX-Large.
Here’s a softer take on zebra print. Sizes X-Small to X-Large.
This split-neck cotton-blend sweater has an interesting diagonal rib pattern. Available in Black or Ivory, and in Misses, Petites, Plus, and Petite Plus sizes.
This side-twist sweater is a lighter weight piece that will layer nicely. Available in sizes 4-18, also in Petites.
This classic v-neck cotton-blend sweater is another good layering option. It’s available in 5 colors in Misses and Plus sizes. (Budget-friendly, too!)
This subtly striped funnel neck sweater is made from a sustainable tencel-blend fabric. Sizes X-Small to X-Large.
The warmth of a turtleneck without the itch! This button-cuff sweater is available in several colors in Misses, Petite, and Plus sizes.
I love the look of windowpane! This textured turtleneck top is offered in sizes XX-Small to XX-Large.
I have this budget-friendly organic cotton crewneck sweater on order in the Cream and Burnished Copper colors. Sizes XXS-XL. Will report back on sizing.
This cotton terry turtleneck is available in a few colors, sizes XX-Small to 3X.
These striped sleeves add a nice accent without being overwhelming. This cotton-blend sweater is also available in Red, sizes X-Small to XX-Large. (According to the description it runs a little large.)
Cardigans (and Sweater Jackets)
This 100% organic cotton cardigan is available in 3 colors, sizes XX-Small to XX-Large.
I love the look of this abstract stripe sweater jacket, and had it been offered in Petite, I would have jumped on it. Sizes XS-XL.
This versatile textured sweater jacket works equally well with casual or polished looks. Available in 3 colors, in Misses, Petite, Plus and Plus Petite sizes.
This silk-cotton blend long cardigan is soft and drapey. It’s offered in 4 colors, Misses and Petites.
Mad for plaid? This cotton blend sweater jacket in a bold monochromatic plaid is available in Misses, Petite, Plus and Plus Petite sizes.
The topstitching and button details on this cotton cardigan make it distinctive. It’s a more spendy piece, but is currently marked down substantially. Ignore the matching shorts…I’d wear this with jeans.
This textured cotton-blend cardigan is available in four colors, sizes XXS-XL.
