100% Merino Wool While its fine fiber diameter pampers your skin with softness, its ability to trap dead air and wick away moisture allows it to provide excellent insulation from the cold and keep you comfortably dry. Merino wool withstands years of constant use, maintaining the newness of color and the firmness of the knit quality. To enjoy it even longer, follow the wash instructions on the label. Store for winter together with some dried lavender to help keep moths away.
Aran Knitting Patterns The Aran knitting patterns are full of rich meaning and dramatic narrative. Much of them are inspired by the Celtic knot work pattern. It is believed that the fishermen who went on their dangerous voyages from the Aran Islands, viewed the knot work as a source of inspiration, and good luck.
The cable pattern stands for a fisherman’s ropes and represents the wish for safety and good fortune at sea. The diamond pattern resembles the shape of the fishermen’s mesh nets, and is the unmistakable symbol for wealth and success.
