Our gorgeous sweater is knit from 100% Merino wool, a fiber that is renowned for its many amazing properties. It is a good insulator because it has small air pockets that trap heat and provide warmth. It is also soft and pleasant to the touch, although the fibers are quite sturdy. Merino wool is also breathable and water-repellant, making it perfect for really cold or rainy days as well as warmer days. The design also stands out thanks to the various traditional Aran stitches, such as the honeycomb, diamond, and cable. These unique stitches have been around since the 19th century and each of them has its own meaning rooted in Irish history and culture, which gives the sweater a unique and authentic charm. The cozy turtleneck design will keep your neck warm and cozy on colder days. Turtlenecks are chic additions and they go well with different styles of clothing. Although merino wool is odor-repellant, it is recommended to wash the sweater once in a while by hand using cold water and mild soap.
