Winter will soon be upon us. I can’t wait to snuggle up on the sofa, safe and warm while the winter rain falls outside. These cosy jumpers are perfect for all your cwtchy winter needs and have a big green thumbs up too.

What makes a jumper green?
It’s no longer a secret that fast fashion brings with it a serious amount of waste – not just fabric, but water, transport, and other materials too. There are ways we can fight this – by reusing what we have, buying preloved, sourcing green materials and shopping locally.
Ethics is another big consideration – do you know who made your clothes? How seriously does the manufacture take worker’s rights?
Besma from Curiously Conscious is big on ethical and sustainable fashion. Do check out her blog to clue up on green fashion.
Ethical and eco-friendly jumpers
Etsy is the best place to start looking for cosy, upcycled jumpers. There is a massive range of small, local businesses upcycling clothes and I love that you can filter by location too.
Another jumper dress – is it just me or are dresses and tunics the way forward for warm clothing? I can see myself wearing this at home, with a pair of leggings, chilling with a microwave chocolate brownie.
Of course, upcycling jumpers isn’t everything. eBay is a great place to find preloved jumpers to see you through winter.
Did you know that several charity shops have outlets on eBay too? It’s easier than ever to shop ethically while raising money for your favourite charity.
Hahaha. This “winner winner vegan dinner” jumper is amazing. I’m seriously tempted to get it and wear it to my mum’s on Christmas Day!
This simple, casual cardi would go with almost any outfit, and the folks at Ethical Superstore can tell you pretty much everything you’d ever need to know about its origins and materials. If you’re buying something completely new, these should be your first call.
