Our Aran Cardigan will keep you warm and fashionable while celebrating your Irish culture. This cardigan combines comfort with style and tradition and creates a one-of-a-kind piece because it is made of 100% Merino Wool and it is also stitched using traditional Aran stitching. Aran stitches have been present in Irish history since ancient times and they were used to represent fishermen's good fortune at sea. Each stitch has a different meaning to it and the combinations make the sweater more of a cultural piece. Featured in this sweater is a mix of cable, diamond, and basket stitches and as a finishing touch, a shawl collar for added elegance. The shawl collar can be worn upside or down depending on the warmth you need and it offers variety to this cardigan’s look.
