Our Classic Cable Wool Wrap is an ideal way to keep warm this winter while honoring Irish heritage and design! Made in Ireland by Saol, a leading knitwear producer, our wrap features classic Aran sweater patterns with a modern and stylish silhouette.
Aran sweaters are not only an iconic fashion item, but an important part of Irish culture. People on Ireland’s Aran Islands began knitting the sweaters in the 1890s to keep their fishermen warm and dry while out at sea. The intricate knit designs served a dual purpose: the extra stitching added weight and coziness to the sweater, and the different stitches had different meanings. The three classic stitches that decorate this lovely wrap are no exception. The classic cable represents the fishermen’s ropes, the diamond knit is supposed to bring wealth to the wearer, and the honeycomb represents the industrious honeybees.
This wrap features an open front shawl design, making it easy to toss on over other sweaters when the weather turns cold. It is available in either classic natural or navy, making it the perfect addition to any outfit. It is made from deliciously soft 100% Merino wool, which gives the wearer all the warmth of the original sweaters, but with modern comfort. Because it is such a versatile shape, you could even wear the wrap as an extra sturdy scarf on frigid days!
To keep your cabled wrap looking new for seasons to come, hand wash in lukewarm water. Use a mild detergent and dry flat.
