Decorate your home with a lovely touch of Ireland with our Patchwork SuperSoft Merino Wool Knit Throw. The beautiful knitted blanket pays tribute to Irish design and tradition with its natural color and intricate knit patterns, which are reminiscent of the classic Aran fisherman sweater. This merino wool throw blanket combines several historic Aran patterns: cables, honeycomb, trellis, and diamond. According to local lore, all of these stitches had special meanings in the original fishermen’s sweaters. The cables stood for the ropes that the fishers used. The honeycomb represented honeybees and their industrious nature. The trellis stitch, the green fields of Ireland. The diamond patterns were a prayer for wealth.
These different patterns add lovely texture and warmth to the cream-colored throw, which is a rich neutral that complements any home decor. Like the iconic sweaters, the throw was made in Ireland and perfectly encapsulates the Irish love of folklore in the meanings surrounding its designs and Irish practicality, thanks to its weight and warmth. 100% Merino wool construction makes this cozy winter warmer incredibly soft, as well. The larger size makes it a wonderful throw to keep you toasty on the living room in front of the fire or on top of your bedspread for those extra-chilly nights.
