15 Wool Staples to Keep You Warm All Winter Long

Call John Snow, because winter is coming. In all seriousness—and whether we like it or not—the cold weather will be here before we know it. With this in mind, it’s worth investing in a few wool staples for winter to keep you warm all season long.

While there are several types of wool to choose from, merino and cashmere are two of the most popular—and they tend to make up our top picks, too. Not only is wool great for its warmth, but it’s also quite breathable and moisture-wicking. Additionally, it’s worth noting that when compared to cotton and linen, wool is more wrinkle-resistant, so feel free to skip the iron or steamer.

Best of all, wool winter essentials can be found across a wide range of price points. From an under-$60 steal to more splurge-worthy pieces, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite wool staples to keep you warm this winter,
