Jumper season has well and truly arrived here in Scotland. I don’t know about you but my autumn/winter uniform is jeans, boots and a cosy knit (although I am trying to find alternatives to this uniform). As I wear a jumper pretty much every day from October until March I like to have a few options in my wardrobe.
Cosy jumpers are a wardrobe essential for me. In fact, I think knitwear makes up the bulk of my autumn/winter capsule wardrobe. And I’m not going to complain about that as I love snuggling up in cosy knitwear.
As it’s currently Wool Week I thought I’d share some cosy ethical jumpers. So if you’re in the market from some new ethical and sustainable knitwear keep reading.
The Non-Wool Jumpers
Whilst I’m most definitely an advocate for wool I completely understand that some of you choose not to wear it. Luckily there are some great options out there. Both of these jumpers are made from 100% organic cotton making them as sustainable as they are stylish.
Fairfield Mustard Cable Knit from Thought (£64.90) – This jumper looks so soft and cosy and the colour is perfect for autumn.
Elise Stripe Jumper from People Tree (£85) – This one may have already found its way into my autumn wardrobe. It’s a lightweight jumper which makes it perfect for this time of year. I’ve been wearing it to work with black trousers but it also looks great with jeans for a more casual outfit.
The Colourful Jumpers
A bright knit is a great way to cheer up your winter wardrobe. These knits are sure to brighten up those cold dark winter mornings.
Gilpin Crew from Finisterre (£75) – I just love the colour of this jumper so perfect for autumn. It also looks like it will be cosy and warm perfect for those autumn woodland walks. I have a jumper from Finisterre in my wardrobe from last year and the quality is amazing especially for the price. They are worth paying a little extra for.
Erraid Jumper from Collingwood-Norris (£250) – This jumper is handmade to order right here in Scotland. I recently visited the studio and Flora who runs the business makes everything herself and really cares about creating a great quality product who will love for years to come. And the colours are super cute and cheery.
The Super Cosy Jumpers
Whilst the autumn weather is normally pretty mild winter is coming and the cold weather with it. Now is the perfect time to stock up on a couple of cosy knits so you are ready when the cold arrives.
Clio Cable Jumper from People Tree (£125) – Another option from People Tree this time its 100% wool meaning this will be super cosy and warm. I love the cable knit design and think this would be so easy to layer up with gloves and scarves on a cold day.
Fireside Jumper from Ally Bee (£209) – This just looks so soft and cosy perfect for snuggling up in on a cold day. I love that it’s made right here in Scotland using British wool.
