The joy of handknit aran for the office.
Edel has been involved in the the local traditional craft of aran most of her life.
Yet it was a green envelope of newspaper cuttings in her grand mothers personal knitting bag that sparked a real interest in Aran revival. From 2010 onward there was renewed widespread interest in heritage in Ireland and Aran knitting seemed in danger of disappearing from our shores. It needed new context and relevance while maintaining the craftsmanship.
This sleeveless embodies much of that story, from the travelling road stitch to the divided family tree, representing our friends and family in other countries now and the generations of diaspora.
Hand knit in Donegal from 100% wool spun and dyed in Donegal with the unique nepp fleck character.
Sample here is a medium measuring 20 ins across and 21 long.
If you'd like a customised colour option please e mail us directly OR specify another colour from handknits on this site.
Will sit well over a shirt, fine turtle neck or a dress.
Look for our oversize cut version of this too.
Expertly Crafted by Edel and knitters with hundreds of years knitting experience between them. Expert hand stitch finish.
Easy Care washing only infrequently recommended as wool is naturally self cleaning via the wicking process. Healthy thermal warmth to wear.
