This elegant and modern cardigan from SAOL is knit from a super soft prewashed Merino and acrylic blend, making it easy to care for and keeping you warm and cozy all season long, whether you wear it for a night on the town or a cozy night in. The cardigan features dual cable and diamond knit patterns, which date back centuries and are inspired by the traditional knitting patterns found on the Aran Islands off Ireland’s west coast. Originally used to keep fishermen warm with extra bulk in the sweaters, today, they symbolize the ropes of these fishermen and the stone fields of Ireland. Together, they represent the hope for good fortune and the promise of wealth. 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.
