Ladies Lumber Cardigan with Collar


■ Knit with 100% luxurious Merino wool, our lumber cardigan is a brilliant display of traditional Aran stitching, with gorgeous chunky braided and rope cable patterns.

■ Seven lovely round, brown football buttons adorn the front of the sweater, contrasting perfectly with the bold cable knit and lending a subtle finished touch.

■ Two convenient front patch pockets are perfect for storing small items and for keeping your hands warm in the chill of winter (and really, who doesn’t love a good pocket?).

■ A sophisticated broad flap collar lends our cardigan a regal flair--it lays gracefully over the shoulders, but can also be folded up as you like. The open neckline also makes it easy to layer over other winter tops, like your favorite turtleneck!

Looking for a beautiful timeless cardigan sweater to complete your collection? You will adore our Ladies Lumber Cardigan with Collar--it has all the classic features of a traditional Irish sweater, with so much coziness to love!

Crafted in Ireland from 100% Merino wool, our cardigan features mesmerizing classic Aran knit stitching patterns to wrap you snugly in ages of Irish culture and tradition. Since Merino is one of the most popular, highest quality textiles in clothing, you know you are getting the highest quality in our cardigan. So soft and cozy, you will love the way our cardigan feels against your skin--all the comfort and warmth of wool with none of the prickliness that traditional wool varieties may give you. The traditional Aran patterns provide a sense of texture, depth and movement to the fabric. Our cardigan also features a series of thick braided and rope-like cable patterns, running the length of the bodice and sleeves to create a slimming silhouette.

Not only will you love how warm and comfortable our wool cardigan is, but you’ll also love the special details that complete this piece. The broad flap collar gives our cardigan a regal flair--wide and dramatic, with an open neckline that allows you to layer easily, even over thick turtlenecks. A row of seven lovely brown football buttons adorns the front closure, a nod to traditional Irish button-down sweaters. Perfect patch pockets also provide a sophisticated touch as well as an easy spot to store small items--your keys or your phone--and also keep your hands warm in chilly weather.

100% Merino Wool
Why is Merino wool special? Merino wool fibers are naturally long, making for strong fibers and super soft yarn. Not only is it super soft, but it does not give you the itchiness that many people associate with wool. Because Merino wool has longer and finer fibers, it is more flexible than other types of wool, and moves easily with you rather than poking the skin uncomfortably (which results in the itchy sensation). This softer quality wool makes it a comfortable choice in all kinds of settings, and the perfect choice of material for this ultimate cozy sweater.

Aran Stitching
Aran stitching is a unique style of knitting characteristic to the Aran Islands, found at the mouth of Galway Bay. While these knitting patterns are reflections of a life on the sea, each particular stitch tells its own story to create a cohesive whole. In our beautiful cardigan, classic cable patterns reflect the fishermens’ ropes and wishes for a safe and fruitful voyage. Plaited or braided stitches are also said to represent the interweaving strands of life. Whether you wear our cardigan in the comfort of your home, running errands around town, or while visiting friends and family, you will love being wrapped in Irish culture and tradition.
