Aran Merino Wool Zip Hooded Long Knit Cardigan
Our stylish hooded Celtic Aran Jacket is a perfect blend of traditional Aran clothing and contemporary fashion. The cardigan is crafted using the finest 100% Merino wool, a sustainable material with natural fibers that help regulate the body’s temperature. This high-quality wool offers amazing breathability, ensuring comfort during both warm and colder months. Its durability and moisture resistant properties make our cardigan long-lasting and suitable for everyday wear. Designed by Saol and made in Ireland, this cardigan is inspired by a time when Irish fishermen of the Aran Islands braved the open seas, and wore raw wool sweaters as protection against the harsh conditions. By using authentic patterns which originated on the remote Aran Islands off Ireland’s west coast, we ensure our high-quality knitwear provides ultimate comfort, warmth, and amazing depth. This texture acts as an insulation layer which keeps the cold out, while also allowing for air circulation. Using the same principles, our cardigan jacket will keep you warm, but not overheated. Beyond the functionality of Aran stitches lies profound symbolism: this cardigan showcases a beautiful variety of the cable stitch, a symbol of good fortune thought to represent the fishermen's ropes, while the blackberry stitch, also known as the trinity stitch, signifies the Holy Trinity in Irish Christianity. The zipper enclosure of this cardigan features the beautiful Trinity Knot, a cherished symbol of neverending love and eternal life. The design is complete with an oversized hood that can be worn up or down, and two side pockets to keep your hands warm and your small belongings safe. A true representation of timeless traditions and impressive Irish craftsmanship, our cardigan serves an ideal gift for family and friends who appreciate these qualities.
