Light sweaters are a must for the winter-to-summer transition, also known as “spring.” While you’re shopping for your springtime wardrobe, don’t let the fashion world “pull the wool over your eyes.” This spring, don’t be fooled by cruelly produced wool, silk, and cashmere. Instead, opt for cozy cardigans made from animal-free fabrics.
