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. Our Ladies Boyfriend Merino Wool Cardigan features a patchwork design of cable, diamond, honeycomb, and zigzag stitching, creating a sense of texture, movement, and life. The cable stitch represents the ropes that the fishermen use, with a wish of safe voyages and a good day at sea. Diamond patterns mirror the shapes of the mesh fishing nets used by the Aran fishermen, also representing success, wealth, and good fortune. Distinctive honeycomb stitching serves as a reminder of the industrious honeybee--a perennially hard worker that assures a reward for its honest labor. The zigzag, a half diamond, is sometimes known as Marriage Lines, but also popularly represents the twisting cliff paths on the islands. The zigzag is meant to represent the typical highs and lows that we experience in life, whether it’s in marriage or in climbing literal and metaphorical cliffs.
