Aran Crafts have been making Irish knitwear since when Molly Cullen incorporated her family cottage industry and created the first modern Aran sweater company to market for the masses. Cullen was determined from a young age to expand the family business and succeeded in creating what is today the largest knitwear manufacturer in Ireland. The Aran sweater is a style that takes its name from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland.
They are traditionally off-white in color, similar to a sheep's wool, and made from percent wool. The distinctly recognizable feature of Aran is the cable patterns woven into the garments. The patterns would typically decorate the chest area. You can opt for different styles of Aran sweaters available in our selection. Fisherman Cardigan Sweater - this warm and cozy zip up cardigan sweater is a top favorite due to the convenient pockets, thick ribbed collar and hood- ideal for cold times.

This style of jumper combines artistic patterns with the core requirement, which of course was a warm and cozy sweater that could stand the type of weather often encountered at sea by fishermen.
The tradition and heritage are still absorbed into the fabric of each garment today but there has been a considerable extension of the colors and styles on offer.

The thick gauge knitting and precise needlework of these sweaters make them last for years, and some have been known to become family heirlooms if cared for properly. Each stitch pattern found in Aran sweaters has a specific meaning associated with it, most often connected to the natural landscape of the rugged west coast of Ireland.
The diamond stitch, a variation on the cable, is reminiscent of the stone walls separating the small farms of rural Irish farmers and is meant to serve as a good luck charm for successful crop yields and wealth.
