Something different with a Traditional NOTE
This tweed wool handknit is cut with deep raglan armholes so you can easily layer up.
Long enough for leggings or with chunky socks and Docs.
The Aran stitch designs used here reflect love in many ways.
(The pink image is a shorter earlier version and the pockets are not on the blue or updated versions one)
The zig zag lines represent the ups and downs of life and the Tree design represents family and friends.
Some cabling too because this is Aran and Aran loves cables. The sides are a rice stitch that was used on Donegal Aran in the 1970's.

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.
