A modern update of an Irish classic, this SAOL Men’s Aran Crew Neck Sweater features alternating bands of cable knitting and rib knitting on a tailored shape to bring style and form to the chunky work sweaters of the past.
Knit from a prewashed blend of Merino wool and acrylic, this sweater is hard-wearing and easy to care for. The crew neck collar, cuffs, and waist are all reinforced with rib knitting as well, cementing this sweater’s snug protection and workman-level quality.
The cable knit pattern is over 100 years old and comes from the remote Aran Islands off Ireland’s west coast and signifies the ropes of Irish fishermen and the promise of a good catch and fortune. This Aran sweater is made in Ireland by SAOL (the Gaelic word for “life,” pronounced like “say-ol”), an Irish knitwear company proudly dedicated to style, comfort, quality, and tradition.
