Aran sweaters have an interesting history. The Aran natives were hardworking fishermen and farmers hence their liking for wool sweaters to counter their rugged lifestyle in the farms or fishing at sea. Since the inhabitants had only two forms of sustenance, farming, and fishing, they preferred these types of clothing, with raised patterns that offered depth, as a way of providing better insulation from the cold winds that blew across the Atlantic from the west. Compared to flat sweaters, Aran sweaters are water resistant up to 30% of their weight, trap air, providing the warmth needed by the body. Patterns like the cable stitch are representative of the beauty of the island as well as their hardworking culture.
