Cozy sweater season is upon us once again! As the weather cools off, you might be looking to add some new knitwear to your wardrobe. Not all of it is the same, however, as some kinds are made with materials that aren’t friendly to animals. Wool, angora, cashmere, mohair, and other materials are taken from sheep, alpacas, rabbits, and other animals who experience pain, fear, love, and joy. The industries that use these animals treat them like objects, not the individuals they actually are. Make sure you aren’t supporting this cruelty by choosing only vegan fall knits made from vegan fabrics such as cotton, hemp, microfiber, bamboo, and linen.

We’ve gathered these vegan fall knits to help you find your favorite:
