This men’s traditional knit Aran sweater is crafted from specially spun Irish wool and is knit on the West Coast of Ireland in the environment where the traditional sweater originated from. It has a very beautiful and rich history behind it. It all started with the fishermen of the Aran Islands who were in need of protective garments because of the very harsh climatic conditions of the islands. The modern-day Aran sweaters are equally efficient at keeping the wearer warm and comfortable, but they are much softer than the original Aran Sweaters as better quality wool is used. The unique softness and lightweight look are due to the amazing Merino wool, which is internationally renowned for its fine quality. Boasting traditional Irish Knitting patterns this sweater is available in Natural, Charcoal, and Army Green Colors. Versatile, warm, and stylish this Irish Aran Sweater makes the perfect gift for someone special that will last a lifetime.
