Ethical and sustainable sweaters: look good, do good

Winter is long and cold here in The Netherlands. I can’t survive this season with just one or two sweaters. Well, maybe I could, but in that case I’d wear the same sweater every week, week after week. Especially in the really cold part of the season, I usually layer two sweaters over two longsleeves. Let’s say, I just love to be warm and cosy. Therefore I’ve collected quite some sweaters in my wardrobe; vintage & preloved knitwear and sustainable sweaters from ethical brands.

In this blog post I’ll be sharing some of my favourite sustainable and ethical sweaters from my collection. I hope you’ll be able to find some thrifting or sustainable shopping inspiration!

Sustainable and ethical sweaters

Näz – Loriga I

This sweater has absolutely been a lifesaver this winter. It’s so thick and cosy. Besides that, this is the only sweater that is chunky enough to machine wash, which is such a plus! If you didn’t know Näz yet, they’re a super sustainable brand, which I’ve interviewed for this blog post.

Paloma Wool – no 201 / Noche

Why only wear black in winter, when you can spice up your day with a colourful outfit? I love this Noche sweater by Paloma Wool a lot, because it’s soft, cosy and colourful. Perfect for winters!

INTI Knitwear – Sustainable Sweaters

I’ve written a full blog post on INTI Knitwear and how much I love their sweaters. Check it out here, in case you missed it.

Everlane – Alpaca Cardigan

I have this cardigan in my wardrobe since 2 years now and I wear it year round. Due to it’s versatility it’s the perfect layering piece for summer and winter.

Everlane – Oversized Sweater

You can’t imagine how often I wear this blue sweater. I’d say every second day of the week!

Vintage Sweaters via Etsy

All items from FineThee are carefully selected by Mihaela. Everything she sells is from extraordinary quality and premium materials. You’ll find vintage silk, cashmere or wool. Besides vintage, FineThee also sells handmade items, such as tailored trousers and matching sets. I love them!

With this blog post, I hope you’ve found some inspiration on where to find vintage, sustainable or ethical sweaters.
