The Hand-knit Aran Sleeveless Vest


  • With the popularity of our natural hand knit high neck aran jumpers we worked up a sleeveless version with a v neck to wear either on its own or with shirts or t-shirts underneath. It’s a gorgeous Aran and we use the same set of Aran stitches found in our high neck Aran Jumper. Hand knitted with a natural flecked soft merino wool yarn spun in Donegal.

    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-knitted, 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. It is a looser more relaxed fit too, with a V or high neck collar.

    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'.

    Please note each jumper is carefully made to order by hand and takes 6-8 weeks. So worth the wait.
