I am passionate about the revival of true Aran knitting. I created this design first in 2014 as a strong silhouette that worked in a contemporary wardrobe, in response to inquiries for just that!
This 100% pure new wool Aran has a high organic Irish fleece content (60%)
The milky ecru shade is called 'white' in the Aran Knit World. It is undyed and spun here in Donegal.
These stitch designs connect family and love in many ways. The zigzag lines represent the ups and downs of marriage and relationships. Sometimes only two lines run alongside each other, but here I added a third! Life is complicated.
The knitted tree design was considered to be symbolic of a long life with many sons? (I did not invent that one) I did however increase the number of branches out of the central mother line.
Aran is often referred to as cable-knit, and this jumper has no shortage of them. All this cabling saves a purpose beyond the aesthetic, it makes the fabric stronger and the shape hold firm. In the original Aran designs developed as workwear, it made them more water-resistant.
The sides are a rice stitch that was used in Donegal Aran in the 1970s.
