Merino wool is the gold standard when it comes to textiles. 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 unique style of knitting characteristic to the Aran Islands, found at the mouth of Galway Bay. The farmers and fishermen of these islands created their distinctive knitting style as a reflection of their lives and families, and each family zealously guarded their clan’s sweater patterns. There is even an official register of the various patterns used by the different clans on the islands. While these knitting patterns are reflections of a life on the sea, each particular stitch tells its own story to create a cohesive whole. The cable stitching on this piece recalls the ropes that fishermen use at sea to haul in their catches and represents wishes for a good day at sea and a plentiful catch. The distinctive diamond patterns running through the torso symbolize the mesh fishing nets used by the Aran fishermen, also representing success, wealth, and good fortune.
Not only do you have the traditional elements of the Aran stitching that draw the eye, but you also have fun details that really make this piece distinctive. A high neckline draws the eye up and provides an extra layer of warmth and coziness without the need for a scarf (although you can always pair this sweater with a gorgeous Aran scarf if you choose). The elegant collar is accented with one button, which calls to mind both traditional buttoned sweaters and jauntily clasped capes. Along with these classy accents, this sweater is available in a vibrant, emerald green color that will remind you of the Emerald Isle every time you see it. Even better, this sweater is machine washable, so it’s durable and easy to care for as well as soft and luxurious.
