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...

"Comfortable shirt but colors not accurate"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This top has great fabric and drape and is cut long enough to be flattering. Size is true in my experience. But the colors in the one I received are very different from photo. Instead of harvest gold and russet, it has bright lemon yellow and bright orange. I love the fit but the colors not so much.

"Love my new hat!"

This hat is warm and really pretty. A little tight on my head but I can stretch it out a bit. The colors are not as bright as in the photos - fine by me. I m now going to buy the matching gloves.
