If you’re looking for your next favorite garment, then look no further! Our Buttoned Irish Cape will be your new favorite companion as you go about your day, from morning to night, and from home to work and back again.
Giving this merino wool poncho an extra chic look is the subtle row of buttons lining the shoulder on one side, creating a polished, tailored effect that is perfect for layering with casual and formal ensembles. What’s more, the Aran stitching and cable patterns add an additional layer of authentic Irish-ness that is guaranteed to impress and turn heads wherever and however you wear it. For many generations, the Irish have stitched numerous variations of the classic Aran pattern specific to the man clans and families that live along the rocky coasts of the Emerald Isle. Since the stitch’s debut on the Aran Islands near Galway Bay, the Aran stitch has become an iconic symbol of the hardy Irish spirit and the hardworking people who rely on it to keep dry and warm when standing against the chilly Atlantic winds. Woven within the Aran stitching of our Buttoned Irish Cape are cable patterns that are meant to resemble the same ropes used on Irish fishing boats. In days of old, the rope pattern was believed to bring good and safety to the fishermen out at sea.
The Merino wool used in our Buttoned Irish Cape is 100% sheared from the backs of grazing Irish sheep. This type of wool is prized for its incredible softness, as well as its reactive behavior to the air temperature around it. In cooler temps, the wool will contract around the wearer, trapping in extra heat and keeping you nice and snug. Conversely, in warmer environments, the wool will expand to allow greater airflow and ventilation. The comfort of Merino wool might best be described as the feeling you never got out of bed that morning, but the material is tough and hardy and will maintain its color excellently for many years.
