What's better than one sustainably made sweater? Two.

Seattle may finally be out of the woods on the pre-5pm sunset front, but the long PNW chilly season soldiers on. Given the accompanying wardrobe, though—fuzzy cardiganspuffy coats—we're totally cool with that. Here's some womenswear worth warming up to.

Many of these products were chosen by our editor from the Shops at Seattle Met, the city's first online marketplace bringing the best local businesses together in one place. Keep shopping for more products from Seattle-area merchants:

Seattleites tend to go for moodier tones, but don't shy away from a creamy, first-snow white—it's universally flattering, and versatile across seasons. With its loose fit and subtle mock neck, this acrylic sweater adds a bit of comfy to a simple jean (or a lot of comfy to your favorite lounge pants). 

Public Habit prioritizes sustainability by making each of its elevated basics to order—less waste, better sweaters. This casual cashmere quarter-zip, available in three earthy colors, is well worth the few weeks it'll take to show up on your doorstep.

Seattle designer Luly Yang takes the form-fitting turtleneck a step further with a form-fitting rib knit and unexpected colorblocking, inspired by the shape of a bustier.

Taking a firm stand against "one-wear-wonders," Rollick aims to simplify your life by turning your entire wardrobe into a no-brainer. Case in point: this neutral (but certainly not boring) multitextured sweater, available up to size 3XL.

Nubby bouclé fabric isn't just for your CB2 couch (though we absolutely condone that use, too). Ever committed to versatility, Sskein's cozy, alpaca wool sweater can be worn backwards for two different v-neck depths.

Hand-dyed in Arimatsu, Japan, using the traditional shibori technique—by a family business with over a century of experience—each of these 100-percent cashmere sweaters is a true one-of-a-kind. And machine washable, to boot.

Throwing on a simple, oversize sweater will forever be our favorite lazy-day move. This super soft and lightweight pick from Seattle label Paychi Guh—which balances out the top's flowy look with fashionable, layer-ready fitted sleeves—also manages to be a fashion statement.

Another sweater with two different necklines built in? Believe it: This blouse-like, ruffle-sleeve pick with a bateau-neck in the front and a party in the back dresses up your knit wardrobe.

Feller's collared cardigan combines the best parts of a cashmere sweater and a button-up for a super-cozy look that's also super put-together. Like if your best pajama shirt suddenly became standard attire for a day at the office.



Top Picks from Other Retailers:

We love Universal Standard for its commitment to size-inclusivity—they carry sizes 00–40, and build their sizing structure around the bell curve of actual American bodies (18–20 is a size medium). But this fitted cardigan, made to be soft but woollike, speaks for itself. 

Downtown Seattle finally has a Uniqlo. Buying this timeless (and incredibly priced) sweater is a great way to celebrate.

A super fun knit doesn't have to box itself in. This one from Staud combines the allure of patchwork and colorblock with the everyday neutrality of black and white.

You'll continue to see the cutout trend throughout 2023—it's an easy way to add a little visual interest to a classic silhouette, like this cable-knit turtleneck. May as well nab one while it's on sale. 

Every cold-weather wardrobe cries out for a neutral duster that you can throw over everything, from WFH pajamas to transitional pieces you pulled out a bit too early in the season. 

We're not ready to let go of the day-glow-brights trend just yet—and we especially love them juxtaposed with a classic cable knit and simple silhouette.
