Earth Thanks' Natural Hemp Jumper Sweater

If a totally classic autumnal pullover is what you're looking for, look no further than Earth Thanks' Natural Hemp Jumper Sweater ($135.99). While it definitely looks like something you'd steal from your grandfather's closet, it's actually made from organic, sustainably-sourced Italian hemp and non-toxic, sustainably sourced dyes. The sweater comes in several colors, so you're bound to find something that fits your personality.

Everlane's Chunky Cardigan ($110) makes us want to sit next to a roaring fire while reading a book, drinking hot cider, and watching the leaves change from a bay window. The sweater is made from 100 percent organic cotton, and the company ensures that its global employees make a living wage, and have safe working conditions. It's important to note that Everlane was involved in a BLM scandal, though, so do your research on the brand before making any decisions.
