Small history lesson about the aran knit:
what is an Aran sweater? It is a style of sweater, also known as a fisherman’s sweater, which originated in the Aran Islands in Connemara, off the west coast of Ireland. These sweaters were traditionally knit in the natural colour of sheep’s wool, an off-white or cream colour. The natural sheep’s wool retained their oils making these sweaters waterproof and perfect for the Irish weather. Originally these sweaters were knit by mothers and wives for the islander men who worked as farmers and fishermen but they have since become a fashion statement and a global symbol of Irishness.
In the 1950’s, an edition of Vogue Magazine created interest in the sweater and this led to a global demand for the fashionable Aran sweater. From the 1950’s until now, you can find many photos of iconic men and women wearing the Aran Sweater, from Pablo Picasso to Grace Kelly to Steve McQueen to Alexa Chung. The Aran sweaters were knit using various textured patterns full of symbolism and individual families on Aran had unique patterns of their own
