Wool fabric Sweaters  

Wool is a favorite for most men because of its ability to retain heat and still remain finely woven. When it comes to function, wool is a top performer and does a great job of keeping your body warm during the winter season.  However, great care must be in place for a 100% wool fabric primarily because of its ability to lose its strength when soaked.

Cashmere Fabric Sweaters

Cashmere sweaters are one of the most popular types of men’s sweaters out there. A very good cashmere sweater can cost a few hundred dollars. If you are looking to get a sweater this season, look for cashmere sweaters.

Cotton Fabric Sweaters

The cotton fabric is a cheaper alternative to cashmere or wool. It does have some positives such as easy to maintain, easy to wash and quite resistant to wear and tear. The downside to cotton is that it is very weak at retaining heat, thus might not be suitable for chilly conditions.
