The Vegan Girl’s Guide to Sustainable Sweaters: 2019


Where to Buy Stylish Vegan Sweaters, That Are Made With Sustainable Practices

Listen, I know it can be difficult to track down cute vegan sweaters that aren’t made of cheap acrylic. This winter, I’m rounding up some of the most gorgeous, cozy, eco-concious vegan sweaters so that you won’t have to!

Good quality vegan sweaters used to be hard to come by. For years, I’d have to choose between something cheap made of synthetics, or consider purchasing a good quality wool sweater secondhand. (I don’t do this anymore, but secondhand is always a great sustainble option!)

However, brands are starting to listen, and I’ve come across so many wonderful, natural-fibre vegan sweaters this year! (You may have already seen me basically living in this SeaCell (seaweed and plant cealulous fibre) oatmeal coloured sweater by Frank and Oak. If you want to snatch one of these wardrobe staple beauties for yourself, it’s on sale now.)

It’s easier than ever to find vegan sweaters in all sorts fo styles! Below are some of the designs I love the most, by brands that produce high quality pieces meant to last. Enjoy!

Peruvian Connection

I had to share this new (for me) find! Peruvian Connection does just what the name suggests: they act as a middleman for Peruvian artisans who handmake these cozy, elegant pieces. Shoutout to my friends at ELUXE Magazine for covering Peruvian Connection, otherwise, I might not have stumbled across them.

In addition to incredibly soft Pima cotton, Peruvian Connection offers lots of alpaca fiber outerwear. So, be sure to read the descriptions if you are looking for only vegan sweaters! I have personally been browsing their Pima Cotton sweater section nearly every day this week. (The Inishmore Pullover made its way into my cart today.)

While not technically a sweater, I would be amiss if I didn’t mention the Frank & Oak Organic Cotton Gym Fleece that I basically live in. Seriously, how many times have you spotted me wearing mine on YouTube and Instagram stories? They also come in a bajillion pretty colours.

Oh, most colours are on sale too. You’re welcome.
