Our Cable Cardigan with Collar and Pockets pays homage to traditional Irish design while remaining contemporary! This cardigan is made of 100% Merino wool, an environmentally friendly and natural material that ensures comfort and warmth for years to come. Merino wool is known for its natural temperature-regulating qualities, which keep you warm without overheating. It also wicks moisture away from your skin, keeping you dry even on chilly winter days or hot summer days. The cultural design of this Irish cardigan features the classic Aran cable stitch and was inspired by Aran fishermen's sweaters, which have been popular since the late 1800s. The cable stitch resembles the ropes and nets used by the fishermen and it is believed to bring good luck for a plentiful catch, paying homage to the hard labor of those who venture out to sea. The cables not only improve the cardigan's aesthetic appeal but also add an extra layer of insulation, making it excellent for protecting from the winter chill. This Irish cardigan is knitted with a folded collar offering warmth and various layering possibilities, such as wearing it over a shirt, a sweater, or a dress. The inclusion of two patch pockets is a functional element for keeping your hands warm and also provides a convenient place to store small items like keys or a phone. This beautiful knit is made by SAOL, a leading Irish knitwear company that strives to translate traditional Aran designs and patterns into modern styles for 21st-century women. Whether you're strolling through the countryside, relaxing by the fireplace, or enjoying a brisk autumn in the city, our Irish cardigan is a versatile choice of fashion, suitable for a variety of occasions and outfits.
