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 cant find comparable articles of clothing in any department store.

"LOVE this Sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love the pattern on this type of sweater in general, but have been so happy with the colors/workmanship that I will definitely buy another until I have all 4 colors! Especially happy with the blue-it is a unique shade between aqua and a dusty blue...

"My Most Favorite Gift Ever!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this wind chime for my sister and her husband for their 10 year anniversary. They have a Tree of Life wall hanging in their home so I thought it was more than appropriate as a gift. They both love it so much and my sister said, It is her most favorite gift she has ever received. She said it is just beautiful.

"LOVE, LIVE THIS WIND CHIME"

Simple yet wonderfully functional. Just makes the right sound in the breeze to be soothing, and if you hang it right the sun shines nicely through the very safe and colorful glass.
