If you are trying to avoid wool (whether because you are vegan or because it makes you itch), there are several good eco-friendly options out there. Organic cotton, if it's knit thickly, is warmer than you would think, and recycled polyester can be wind-resistant and will dry quickly (and still keep your hands warm, like wool) when it gets wet. Here are a few sweet and stylish, vegan options for keeping toasty this cold-weather season.
