Details

Although it might feel as old as Ireland itself, Aran knitting was actually developed at the turn of the 20th century by enterprising island women who traded stitches among themselves and earned extra income by selling their heavy, lanolin-rich jumpers to travelers. According to local lore, each Aran stitch symbolizes a different part of life on these rugged, remote islands. This classic men's sweater features the diamond trellis stitch, representing the fishing nets used by Aran fishermen, with alternating bands of the plait or braided cable stitch, thought to celebrate the closeness of family life. A zipper at the neck makes it easy to layer over a lighter-weight base.

"Galaway Pride Sweater"

Nice sweater however too large. Bigger problem was the $5.95 to ship to me but over $20 to return. Probably will not order from here again.

"Very big and loose knit"

The sweater is knit nicely and is wool BUT very thin loose wool. A medium was HUGE and the loose knitting means it catches on absolutely everything and ends up with big pulls. Given it was so big and pulling constantly and relatively unusable as is I washed it hoping it would tighten up a bit and shrink a little. Washed on warm thinking might have to do it again as it was so big ....and now it will fit a doll. Live and learn probably should have just returned it.

"Perfect weight"

This is a well made sweater of medium weight which is very comfortable. The colors and design remind me each time I wear it if my Peruvian travels. Love it.

"Great Gift for a Scuba Diver"

My husband is a scuba diver and just loves the sea turtles. He was delighted with this shirt. I loved that it washes beautifully and is true to size.
