Details

For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stitches in their sweater--like a Scottish tartan--isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches. Each stitch in this generously sized, traditional Aran sweater represents a facet of fishing culture: the honeycomb stitch for hard work, the cable stitch for safety on the waters, and the basket weave as a wish for a plentiful catch. The 100% merino wool sweater features a cozy turtleneck for winter warmth.

"Winter Classic"

I appreciate handmade items made with TLC, and this sweater is no exception. The craftmanship found in Arran sweaters is a dying art and you certainly can't find comparable articles of clothing in any department store.

Best Uses

"3 aran sweaters"

I love the almost immediate shipment and the sweaters are beautiful and very well made. I purchased one of each color. I love them and know I will enjoy wearing them.

"Fits well, lightweight, comes in a fabric bag"

At first, I thought I'd received the wrong item. When I opened the box, I saw lovely printed fabric. Turned out, it was a bag in which the sweater had been packed. The size small fits me perfectly--a little loose but not too loose--and it's cozy and comfortable. It's lightweight, not densely knitted, almost feels a little fragile, but I love it. I bought the black one on sale and will be wearing it more often when the weather cools off in the autumn.
