If you are looking for something that is a little different to wear for the winter but something that will still keep you toasty warm, what better article of clothing to drape yourself with than the Aran Cape. You can easily let it hang loosely around you on a breezy fall day or pull it tightly like your favorite blanket when the temperatures really begin to dip.
The Aran Cape is created as most of the Aran Sweaters have been created through the years. Using only Merino Wool, the very best wool made from the highest quality sheep, the cable knit patterns join together creating a united front. These patterns are still similar to the ones that were crafted in the 1800s to keep the fisherman who worked on the Aran Islands warm while they were working in the winter.
This beautiful cape defies any current trends yet will match up perfectly with just about anything in your wardrobe. The sleeves are three-quarter length so you can wear a long sleeve shirt underneath when it’s cold and wear it by itself when it’s just right outside. The cable pattern on this cape is a cable knit that starts out small and the stitches get larger as it works its way to the left side of the cape. The stitching is diagonal and it works perfectly in creating just enough of a small shawl collar. It criss crosses at the neck creating a draped effect that will work with a pretty turtleneck peeking out or without one.
The Aran Cape comes in two beautiful shades: Charcoal and Parsnip. Available sizes are S/M and M/L. This is just the kind of casual yet cozy cape you will want to pull on every time you go outdoors. The quality and classic style will easily make this a favorite piece for years to come.
