100% 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 natural 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 art form, 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. In our Ladie's Irish Zipper Cardigan, cable ropes and braid patterns represent the Aran fishermen’s ropes, trellis stitches symbolize the fields of the islands. Basket stitching calls to mind the fishermen’s baskets and hopes for bountiful catches. The braided elements also signify the different strands of life coming together. When you wear this cardigan, you are wrapped in wishes for good luck and good fortune.
