We have to say that we love this sweater dress by Vaute, which is wool-free and 100% vegan. It's made from a blend of 80% recycled cotton and 20% cotton and comes in ivory, apricot and black. We have it in black.
The crazy thing about wool - aside from it being itchy, stinky, and hard to care for - is the cruelty that goes along with the wool industry. Muelsing, shearing, and rearing sheep is cruel and unusual. There's no need to wear wool when there are so many superior materials out there, and cotton is no exception.
This sweaterdress, like all of Vaute's current collection of sweaters, is made in NYC's Garment District from recycled yarn salvaged from industrial waste cotton. The knitting process is zero-waste, with each sweater being knit from one continuous piece of yarn. Best of all, it's 100% vegan. This sweater dress is anything but itchy. It's conservative on top with the turtle neck hugging snugly just below the chin, and sexy on the bottom with slits going almost four inches up on either side. Because of it's length, it can be worn with opaque tights, but also with jeans and pants if you so desire.
