This is the quest for vegan sweaters that are warm and cute. I am desperately on the hunt, any suggestions? And, in the wise words of Kittee, "no fleece".

Do you have a Lauren outlet anywhere nearby? They usually have super warm, super thick, soft cotton sweaters with a shawl collar for around ~$30-40 depending on the sales (sometimes less) in 4 or 5 different colors. I lived in those when it was super cold and snowed in last year--perfect with corduroy skirts and tall boots. They wash and wear really well without pilling, but since I don't put anything cotton in the dryer, they do tend to take an eon to hang dry because they are so thick.

Really? That's it for sweater love, ppk?
Thanks for these two tips--I'm well-versed in thrift shopping already, and not sure I'm into Lauren but can check it out.
If anyone else has any suggestions for sweaters, I'd love to hear or see them.

Hmmm.... I like the sweaters at American Eagle. Check labels, there is unnecessary wool sometimes.
I just ordered this one in the gray and blue stripe variation:

I love Jcrew's Jackie cardigan. It's simple, slightly retro, and matches everything. And it's cotton! Not particularly warm though.

If I can't find what I'm looking for at a thrift store, I really like Target and Old Navy for cute sweaters that don't break the bank.

I can never find sweaters that I like that aren't wool or 10% rabbit or something! I'm in the same boat as you

I feel some what guilty in saying this, but I am broke and I am not finding any good thrift stores around here, I bought a really lovely organic cotton sweater at WALMART for $12.

I hate shopping at Walmart too, especially around the holidays and they built this new gigiantic one here and it is akways packed, always! But I have found quite a few good deals there. I don't go out of my way to shop there but if my Mom buys me something from there, I wear it.

I wandered into an Urban Outfitters, which I normally hate, and found that they have a lot of vegan sweaters. I got this one to layer:

There's a papaya clothing store near me and it's very reasonably priced. Good alternative to Old Navy and stuff...
