Collection: Men's Irish Knitwear

The Aran Sweater, also known as the Irish Sweater or fisherman's sweater has its origins West of Ireland, on the cold waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, where you’ll find the Aran Islands. Here, many decades ago, the mothers and wives of the Irish fishermen and farmers would knit unique sweaters for them, out of natural sheep’s wool. The wool had retained oils, which made the sweaters waterproof - just perfect for the ruthless weather near the ocean. When their husbands or sons left to go to the sea, the women were left behind, wondering if they would ever come back home. They started knitting the sweaters in different patterns, many of them inspired by the fishermen’s ropes and nets, as symbols of good fortune and warding off bad luck at sea. This is the story of the Aran Sweaters, born out of necessity, and the story of islanders, simple people of Ireland, who unknowingly started a piece of fashion of incredible success. Each one of these sweaters carries the legacy of Ireland and creates a time portal back to island communities of decades ago.

Traditional Men’s Irish Wool Sweaters 

If you were wondering where to find authentic Irish wool sweaters of the best quality then you came to the right place. All of our traditional Aran sweaters and cardigans are made in Ireland knit by world-class Irish knitters. Each piece is crafted according to tradition, with high attention to detail, and only the best quality wool is used. They are knitted by masters who have enriched their skills over the course of a lifetime. A large variety of knitting patterns are used, either on their own or in combinations: cable, diamond, blackberry, and honeycomb stitches. One Aran sweater contains tens of thousands of carefully constructed stitches, with each of them holding a story behind it. These beautiful Aran jumpers are sure to bring an authentic feel as well as an elegant modern twist to any outfit. At Tara, you can find anything to your liking, from a nice wool fisherman sweater or vest for a classic look to a stylish Aran cardigan for a business casual outfit. The sweaters can be worn in any season because they are made of soft merino wool that is breathable, moisture-wicking, not itchy, and very comfortable to wear. We appreciate you taking the time to browse our Men's collection of Irish sweaters and we hope you enjoy your shopping experience with us.
