■ Cozy front pockets are perfect to keep your hands warm, or to store your phone or your keys close at hand. (And really, everyone loves a great pocket!)

■ Featuring both rope and braided versions of the classic cable stitch, the patterns pay homage to the fishermen of the Aran Islands with their traditional knitting patterns.

■ Crafted from pure Merino wool, our cardigan is super soft and warm. And since it is knitted from the highest quality in textiles, you know you’re getting the very best every time you put it on.

Merino wool is the gold standard when it comes to textiles. Soft, absorbent, and all-natural, this type of wool is perfect for fabrics and knits that are made into clothing. If you have not had the privilege to experience merino yet, you are in for a treat. Merino’s small fibers give it the bend and twist that makes it perfect for all kinds of apparel. The softer nature of merino wool means that it does not poke and scratch at the skin, so you can wear it with confidence--no uncomfortable itchiness. Only soft, luxurious comfort.

Aran stitching is a uniquely Irish artform, born in the Aran Islands at the mouth of Galway Bay. The different knitting stitches that form the different distinct patterns in the wool are inspired by generations of Aran fishermen, their families, and the history of their lives at sea. Cable stitching represents the ropes that fishermen use, with hopes for safe voyages and good days at sea. Plaited or braided stitches like the ones on our cardigan are also said to represent the interweaving strands of life.

Whether you wear this sweet cardigan around town to run your errands, or to visit your loved ones, you will be wrapped snugly in wishes of safety and good fortune.
