Soft, absorbent, and all-natural, this type of wool is perfect for fabrics and knits that are made into clothing. If you have not had the privilege to experience merino yet, you are in for a treat. Merino’s small fibers give it the bend and twist that makes it perfect for all kinds of apparel. The softer nature of merino wool means that it does not poke and scratch at the skin, so you can wear it with confidence--no uncomfortable itchiness. Only soft, luxurious comfort. Aran Stitching Aran stitching is a uniquely Irish artform, born in the Aran Islands at the mouth of Galway Bay. The different knitting stitches that form the different distinct patterns in the wool are inspired by generations of Aran fishermen, their families, and the history of their lives at sea. Our Celtic Ladies Winter Gilet features traditional cable, basket, and trellis stitching, each with their own distinctive meanings. Cable stitches are among the most common in Aran sweaters, symbolizing the fishermen’s ropes and wishes for a bountiful day at sea. The basket designs represent the baskets that fishermen used, and the wish for a big catch. Trellis stitches bring to mind the stone walls that encircle the fields of Northwestern farming communities like those in the Aran Islands, where rock outcrops naturally or large stones exist naturally in the soil, symbols of protection and safety. Whether you’re running around town or at work, wear this sweater vest for good luck and a great day!
