SAOL’s Merino Wool Aran Baby Blanket is the perfect blend of comfort, superior craftsmanship, and a culturally-inspired design, that will elevate your nursery with a touch of Irish allure.
Crafted from 100% Merino wool, this fluffy baby blanket offers unparalleled softness. Merino wool boasts durability and resistance, ensuring that this blanket withstands the test of time.The blanket showcases traditional patterns derived from the distant Aran Islands, situated along Ireland's western coast, which were initially crafted to provide insulation for raw wool sweaters worn by Irish fishermen while out at sea. The distinct texture of this design offered a dual advantage of breathability and good heat insulation – countering the harsh conditions of the Atlantic environment. Crafted using the same traditional technique, our baby blanket ensures optimal comfort and warmth without overheating, making it an ideal choice for babies.
The culturally-inspired design features Aran cable, basket, and honeycomb stitches which hold a profound history and symbolism. The cable stitch is said to symbolize Irish fishermen's ropes, which local women knitted as a wish for their husbands' safety at sea. The honeycomb stitch represents the hardworking bees and the sweet rewards of their labor, adding layers of cultural significance and warmth to your baby's world. The basket pattern is reminiscent of fishermen’s baskets and is thought to bring good luck and big catches at sea.
