There are so many great knitwear brands that can be purchased in Australia. We chose the above brands – Aere, Forever New, Cotton On and Atmos&Here – because they’re right at the intersection of affordability and quality. And they also make the best knits that you’ll want to wear again and again – hello, sustainability!


Cardigans can be purchased at stores like Myer, The Iconic, Forever New and even Amazon AU. As far as which brands are the best, well, that depends on what you’re after.
