The sports vibe Aran knit hoodie in our Sliabh Liag yarn exclusive designed by Edel is a double winner.
100% tweed pure new wool, dyed and spun in Donegal and then handknit locally with a belief in keeping our heritage relevant and connected.
A longer line, with a practical knitted hood and Magee fabric covered buttons made in our studio.
Showcasing stitches that cannot be machine knit like the honest blackberry while the trellis and large rope cabling bring more folklore.
Edel calls her design line up here “Good Luck”, explaining that each stitch here references harvest, fishing and life itself. A cardigan you can read and treasure!
All the rib stitch bands and borders are firmly knit in twisted knit stitch to highlight the handmade look and for lasting stretch.
The garment is strongly hand stitched in wool making it 100% handmade and finished. YUM.

How to care for me
Maybe you’ve never owned one of me before?
Here’s my experience so far;
I’d prefer not to be stuck in that dark press but when I must go in there just roll me up loosely first.
I don’t need much washing although my Italian cousins say that I’m a gorgeous natural thing and washing improves me!
When washing make it no higher than 30 degrees and please only a wool recommended detergent. Squeeze all the water out after handwashing me, even roll me up in a towel to do this! Dry me flat on my back.
Keep direct sunlight away from my cables!
Edel and many of her long-term clients machine wash my friends. Hopefully they never put them in the drum at higher than 30 degrees or with nasty biological stuff!!!! The horror.
I’m terrified of the tumble dryer, please never do that to me.
Through Summer if you don’t need me (I hope you will), store me in an airtight zip bag please and I’ll get a rest with no disruption. I hope to spend a lifetime with you, but if you want to give me to a friend or send me to a charity store for a break that’s OK.
My wool is so healthy to wear and antibacterial, plus you’ll be living off the compliments.
