For Centuries Irish Fishermen in the Aran Islands have appreciated the wonderful qualities of wool. Using this wonderful raw material they created a style of knitting and a piece of knitwear that is still recognised and prized today: The Aran Sweater.
Intimately linked to families and their identities, the patterns used have long held symbolism and meaning:
- The Cable stitch represent the fisherman's ropes.
- The Diamond stitch represents the small fields of the Aran Islands.
- The Moss stitch represents the seaweed used to fertilize fields for a good harvest.
Merino Wool has a quality that other wools do not. Merino wool is prized for its luxurious hand feel. This is due to the fine diameter of the wool fibres that make up the yarn. The result is a wool that is soft and pleasant to the touch and to wear.
We hope that you will enjoy and treasure the quality product that you are purchasing.
