They call it a "fisherman's sweater" for a reason! In times (mostly) gone by, hardy Irish men wore woolly sweaters from the Aran Islands to combat freezing cold and damp wet while working outside in the winter, be it out on the rolling fields or battling the tide at sea. Woollen fabric was a godsend, since it was warm and water-repellent. In fact, Irish sweaters can absorb 30% of their weight in water before they even begin to feel wet, making them a top-notch choice for any occasion on which warmth and breathability alike are called for.

Why Merino Wool Is Best for Irish Sweaters
Irish wool is an incredible insulator, primarily due to its built-in natural crimp with a high volume of air (which accounts for the above-mentioned breathability). And, importantly, the wool used was thick and soft -- no scratchiness to be felt, meaning that these hard-working men could work in the utmost comfort, focused entirely on doing what they did best. It’s a little-known fact that the forefather of the Irish sweater is the gansey (or guernsey), a garment that British fishermen donned for centuries. Of course, the two are markedly different -- but how, you might ask? The big difference between a gansey and an Irish garment is style and flair, of course! 
The Irish brought their signature panache to the sweater game. Not satisfied with the gansey's planer, practical workaday design, Irish knitters got creative and started experimenting with their stitches, the better to allow their people to look as great as they felt. The results have stood the test of time, to say the least -- not least due to some popularization by Vogue magazine in the 1950s, when their articles on Irish knit jumpers cemented their status as a fashion mainstay for all time.

 Irish Wool Sweaters Collection

All of Shamrock Gift’s handsome Aran Sweaters for men are part of this tradition. In some cases, we've jazzed them up with modern touches (a turtleneck here, or a steel zipper there), but the substance and style of each stitch remains intact. It's the same awesome sweater Irishmen have been wearing for hundreds of years, easily accessible in our catalogue for anyone with the desire to get a little much in touch with their family’s heritage -- and the wonders of Irish fashion, too.
