Aran - Traditional Sweater - Raspberry
Irish - Cable Sweater - Raspberry
100% Merino Wool
This Traditional Irish crew neck sweater is one of Aran Crafts greatest sellers. It follows all the Traditional Irish Aran stitching patterns that have been passed down from generation to generation, which in olden days told stories of families and life in Ireland. Along the centre panel of the body the honeycomb Aran stitch flows, signifying the hard working bee or the hard work of a fisherman. On either side of this centre panelling there are rows of Irish cable Aran stitches resembling the fisherman's ropes, the link to life. This jumper tells a story through Irish knitting.
How to take care? The golden rule is wash as seldom as possible and air frequently. We call this ‘wind-washing’, hang your garment out in the air and you will be amazed at how fresh it becomes. Never machine wash; they should be washed by hand using wool washing detergent and in cool water below 30 degrees Celsius. Always dry your jumper flat and never put in a tumble drier.
Before you store a sweater it must be clean. The best way to store a sweater is in an airtight container.
