This refined Ladies Merino Wool Cable Aran Zipper Cardigan from SAOL is knit from 100% Merino wool that has been prewashed to ensure the highest quality comfort and softness. The elegant knit patterns on the cardigan are a modern blend of traditional cable knitting and diamond patterns found for generations on working sweaters of Irish fishermen. Renowned for their ability to add bulk and insulation to these pieces, here they convey style and the very best of Irish craftsmanship.
The diamond pattern represents the fields of Ireland and the promise of wealth, while the cables signify the ropes of Aran fishermen and the hope for good fortune. The zipper pull too is imbued with meaning, showcasing a classic Irish Trinity knot bound with a circle, symbolizing the never-ending cycle of life, an important part of ancient Celtic beliefs.
Additionally, this cardigan features a double-layer high collar for extra protection from the elements, as well as ribbed reinforced cuffs to keep the wind at bay. The tailored waist and makes it a beautifully feminine layer any time you want to wear a little Irish inspiration.
This Aran sweater is made in Ireland by SAOL (the Gaelic word for “life,” pronounced like “say-ol”), an Irish knitwear company proudly dedicated to style, comfort, quality, and tradition.
