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 life on the sea, each particular stitch tells its own story to create a cohesive whole. Cable designs represent fishermen’s ropes, with hopes for safe voyages and good days at sea. Moss stitching represents abundance and growth, and basket patterns symbolize fruitful catches in fishermen’s baskets. Whether you’re running errands, at the office, or visiting family and friends, you will be wrapped in wishes for safe travels and good fortune every time you wear our cardigan.
