1. Aran Sweater — quintessentially Irish

Aran sweaters are the classic choice for both men and women. Often known as a Fisherman sweater, they are distinguished by their use of complex textured stitch patterns, several of which are combined in the creation of a single garment. Aran cardigans & sweaters are knitted with a soft yarn called merino in the natural báinín (bawneen) color and in other colors reflective of the Irish countryside. The patterns, designs and embossed decoration in every garment still represent the loves, lives, losses and defiance of the Aran Island community. Every stitch tells a story!
