A remarkably complex piece of contemporary Irish knit design, the Celtic Cable Knit Throw from Saol is knit from a super soft blend of Merino wool and acrylic, ensuring that it will never itch or scratch and will keep you warm all season long.

The throw is knit using intertwined and alternating cable and diamond patterns that give this blanket a totally unique Celtic texture and meaningful design. These patterns, which can be found on parchment and in manuscripts dating back centuries, made their way into Irish craft knitwear around the turn of the 20th on the remote Aran Islands when they provided additional insulation compared with flat knitted sweaters for working fishermen.

The diamond pattern on this blanket represents farmers fields and the promise of wealth. The cable patterns represent the ropes of fishermen and signify the promise of good fortune. The throw is also finished at the sides with a reinforced blackberry stitch pattern, which is highly durable and prevents fraying. The blackberry pattern symbolizes nature and abundance.

Saol is one of the leading manufacturers of contemporary Irish knitwear, accessories and throws. Inspired by the traditional Irish fishermen’s sweaters first created over a century ago on the remote Aran Islands off Ireland’s west coast, Saol’s line of throws and blankets carries on the tradition of fine craftsmanship, intricate detail, and durable materials to create dramatic and lasting pieces for any room of the house when you need a little extra warmth.
