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 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. Our Women's Long Aran Knit Cardigan features bold diamond patterns, representing prosperity and success. Classic cable patterns, representative of the ropes fishermen use at sea, are symbolic of hopes for safe voyages and bountiful catches. Basket patterns are reminiscent of fishermen’s baskets, with wishes for fruitful catches. Whether you wear our cardigan for running errands around town, visiting with friends and family, you will be wrapped warmly in wishes for good fortune!
