Just in stock now and in time for Spring are some beautiful pieces of Aran Knitwear by The Aran Woollen Mills, a family business based in Westport County Mayo, not far from The Aran islands.
Set up the Hughes Family the business over 60 years the business is still family run today with Vincent at the helm of the manufacturing end of thing.
Everything is made on site in their factory in Westport using high tech power looms with great attention to detail finishing each garment by hand maintaining the tradition of the Aran style of sweater on for more generations to come.
We have been stocking Aran Woollen Mills products (formerly know as Carraig Donn Knitwear) since we opened in 1995 for their quality and style. They can keep the Aran sweater in it’s traditional form but take it to new levels with colour, style and fabric.
Such as this beautiful Super Soft Pink Merino Wool Aran cardigan now in stock and online at http://www.thedonegalshop.com a stylish comfortable cosy cardigan and incredibly soft to the touch.
They also do a fabulous range of home ware accessories such as a the Merino Wool Plait throw pictured above. Now who wouldn’t like to be sitting on an Irish Beach staring out to the sea maybe even catching a glimpse of the Aran Islands out to see on a clear warmish day, it’s Ireland after all! magic
