Made using 100% Merino Wool the Ladies fitted Aran has a delicate feminine Lattice collar and nice long sleeves.
It’s an ideal winter wardrobe staple that will not date and will get you through the coldest of winter days due to it’s shear warmth.
This Summer the iconic Aran Sweater made headlines when in New York it was featured in Moma (Museum of Modern Art) New York taking it’s place on a world stage alongside more than a hundred items considered powerful and enduring examples of 20th century clothing such as the Biker Jacket and Breton Coat to name but a few. The exhibition runs until January 28th 2017.
A Style for men or women our regular fit Aran is a unisex garment that can be worn over sized for a more relaxed fit.
Our Arans are machine made and range in price from €55 to €90 depending on the weight and style of garment, also some are made using pure new wool and the majority are made using Merino Wool which is softer to the touch pictured above.
At the top of the Aran range comes the hand knit Aran Sweater, made the in the old school fashion where women would knit at home and send back to the company they were knitting for. Some can weigh over 1.2 kilos and take over 3 weeks to make made using pure new Irish Wool.
Here Shane is wearing a black sheep wool (completely natural colour) that was hand knitted in Donegal For Magee, stocked in our store and online at €299.99
If that’s a little over your budget. A Hand Loomed Aran Sweater By Rossan Knitwear is the next best thing. A hand loomed Aran involves a lot more work than a machine knit and not quite as much as a Hand Knit but they have the weight and similiar look to an Aran.
Whichever style you go for you’ll be sure to be be warm and toasty this winter.
