Our Irish Men’s Crew Neck Sweater from Carraig Donn is a perennial favorite from a large range of men’s premium knitwear, and it is not hard to see why! Stylish and comfortable, this rugged sweater is knit from 100% merino wool. Its high-quality, extreme durability, and astounding comfort all combine to create a one-of-a-kind garment that is perfect for any adventurous man with a need for a versatile garment. The cable and honeycomb patterns add an eye-catching, yet subtle texture that ramps up the luxury and style factor, while at the same time paying homage to the timeless tradition of the classic Aran stitch.
Unlike other types of wool, merino’s softness is unparalleled. It is not scratchy like you might assume. And its fibers expand and contract according to the temperature, allowing air to flow more freely around your body, or locking heat in when need be. In short, you will never feel stifled or overheated when wearing this amazing garment. This is not your grandpa's wool sweater! Although it certainly pays its respects to the traditional Aran garments of generations past. Cable and honeycomb designs have been making their appearances in traditional Irish sweaters for centuries, having first made their appearance among the hardy coastal communities of the Aran Islands off Ireland’s northwestern shores. It is there that fishermen depended heavily on the tight knit of the woolen sweater to keep the harsh Atlantic elements at bay. It did not take long for the Aran stitch’s popularity to spread across the island, and eventually Europe. Today, the Aran sweater is still worn with pride by Irish men and women and enjoys popularity across the globe for its style and utility.
