We’re headed into an unprecedented winter, and Canadians can go one of two ways: embrace the cold and stock up on winter gear, or stay inside and find new ways to keep ourselves entertained as we ride out the COVID-19 pandemic.
Whether you’re the outdoors type, or you prefer snuggling up on the couch with a tea and a good book, you’re going to want to be wearing a comfy sweater to get you through the holidays.
So, in the spirit of trying to keep everyone as comfortable as possible, we rounded up some of our favourite sweaters for women and men from Canadian retailers to keep us cosy no matter what.
Check out the cosiest sweaters in our slideshow and get the full details below.
