From the very second you slip it on, this timeless Aran knit sweater is guaranteed to make you feel powerfully connected to the Emerald Isle, and, in particular, the Aran Islands, the region responsible for striking designs such as these. Here, the main stitch in use is the diamond stitch, which is said to represent wealth and prosperity.
At its inception, in fact, it was modeled on the the nets of the Aran Island fishermen, who wore it out to sea as a good luck token in the hopes that they might return home with a large catch of fish. On this traditional Aran sweater, the insides of the diamond stitches are filled with the more diminutive moss stitch, named after the Carrageen moss seaweed that the Aran Islanders collected from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
Thanks to these age-old Aran stitch patterns, this men’s sweater has a powerfully timeless look. Made from 100% Irish merino wool, it’s also guaranteed to keep the wearer warm and toasty during the winter months, and is available in a broad range of colors, including army green, charcoal, and navy, to fit any personal taste!
