Requests for a black hand-knit Aran set us off to do a version of our popular natural cream hand-knit Aran jumper. We changed the shape to be shorter so it is more of a box-style jumper that sits just below the waist. The black Donegal spun soft merino wool yarn is beautifully flecked with orange and red and mustard. Hand knitted in Dublin by the wonderful Sonya.
The Aran jumper is an Irish icon. A world recognised symbol of the west of Ireland that has its roots in small coastal islands and villages along the Atlantic coast. Today there are many versions of the original available, but we wanted to design a jumper that was traditionally hand-knit, that we could wear day to day and suit the way we live. We designed our pattern, shape and finish to feel great in and look great in. We work with very experienced knitters who bring their own magic to each and every jumper. The STABLE Aran is lighter than the traditional Aran and made with merino wool, so it does not irritate the skin.
The blackberry stitch found in the centre front and back panel denotes that this Aran is hand knit as this stitch can not be replicated on a machine. The Diamond Stitch is a traditional design symbolising fishing nets and was used as a symbol for wealth and success. The Cable Stitch reflects the 'intertwining strands of life.
