Our Crew Neck Traditional Aran Sweater is sure to become your new favorite, seamlessly blending traditional Irish fashion with a modern aesthetic. Crafted from 100% Merino wool, this sweater boasts softness and breathability. It is resilient and naturally wrinkle-free, so you won’t be concerned about ironing. Merino wool is a premium yarn, ethically sourced from Merino sheep, providing a sustainable, vegan, and eco-conscious choice for your wardrobe. Due to the moisture-wicking and heat-insulating properties of this yarn, our sweater makes a versatile addition to your collection, that can be worn all year round, in cool summer evenings, during chilly fall days, and to keep you warm in the winter season. The unique design of this sweater is a tribute to Irish heritage, featuring Aran cable and moss stitches, each carrying unspoken blessings for good luck, wealth, and protection. The cable stitch, a classic in Aran knitwear, symbolizes the fishermen's ropes, and was knitted by local Irish women as a wish for their husband's safety and good fortune during sea ventures. The zig-zag patterns are also known as “marriage lines”, symbolising the ups and downs of married life. The moss stitch, resembling carrageen moss found on the shores of the Aran Islands, symbolizes prosperity and abundance in Irish tradition. Beyond the sophisticated texture and the visual appeal that these stitches add, they were initially created for the insulation of raw wool sweaters worn by Irish fishermen. This technique ensures a dual advantage of both heat insulation and breathability, guaranteeing maximum comfort without causing overheating. Designed with versatility in mind, this relaxed-fit sweater features a classic crew neck, ribbed cuffs, and hem, offering a snug fit for anyone. This sweater is perfect for layering, pairing well with a turtleneck blouse or an elegant shirt, providing style and warmth for various occasions and aesthetics. Made in Ireland by Aran Woollen Mills, this Irish sweater boasts excellent craftsmanship and an authentic design. As a unique gift idea for a beloved person in your life, our sweater is sure to impress and become a timeless addition to any wardrobe.
