These stunning Irish sweaters incorporate an authentic Irish design with the warmth and style that modern women want. Each sweater boasts a classic array of Aran knitting patterns combined with a simple look, for a perfect blend of elegant and versatile. This Aran Island sweater is made to work equally well with dressier ensembles as it does with your favourite denim when you’re relaxing at home. Each sweater has a slim fit, creating a flattering physique that is never bulky, all while still offering superior warmth and softness.
The hallmark of these Irish sweaters is the Aran stitching. These stitch patterns are intricately woven by skilled craftsmen, each one featuring a unique Irish design that has been passed down throughout the generations. These stitches are said to hold special meaning for the clans from whence they were derived, and now you can appreciate this significance while adding a beautiful new addition to your wardrobe. The cable knit stitch is said to represent fishermen’s ropes, and symbolizes the hope for a good catch and prosperity. These Irish sweaters also boast the honeycomb stitch, which stands for plenty and good luck. These special meanings are ones you’ll be glad to carry with you, no matter where you go.
This Aran jumper is woven from 100% real merino wool. This type of wool is well-known as a symbol of luxury for its warmth and softness. The wool also makes these Irish sweaters ideal for cold and wet weather conditions, since wool is naturally insulating as well as moisture resistant. Wool is also breathable, and it helps to regulate temperature, so even if the sun comes out and warms things up, you stay cool and comfortable.
