Our Aran Button Up Cable Knit Cardigan is an excellent choice for this season, and sure to become your new favorite! Crafted from 100% Merino wool, this cardigan boasts sumptuous softness, breathability, and comfort. Merino wool is a premium yarn, sourced ethically from Merino sheep, providing a vegan and sustainable choice for eco-conscious people. Moreover, this material is durable, resilient, and naturally wrinkle-free. Due to its great breathability, moisture-wicking, and heat-insulating properties, this cardigan is a versatile garment, perfect for year-round wear.

This cardigan boasts a unique and sophisticated design, enriched by the richly textured Aran cable, zig-zag, and moss stitches – a staple of Irish knitting traditions that carry deep meaning. The cable stitch is thought to resemble the fishermen’s ropes and was knitted by local Irish women for their husbands, as a genuine wish for their safety and good fortune when at the sea. The zigzag stitch is inspired by the winding cliff paths on the Aran Islands, symbolizing love & marriage, with its highs and lows. The moss stitch represents the carrageen moss found on the shores of the Aran islands – and it’s a symbol of prosperity and abundance. Although they enhance the visual aesthetic of this cardigan, Aran stitches were originally created to enhance insulation for raw wool sweaters worn by Irish fishermen. The dual advantage they bring – of both breathability and heat insulation – was useful to counterweight the challenges posed by the harsh Atlantic climate. Our Aran Button Up Cable Knit Cardigan is crafted using the same traditional technique, offering breathability and optimal warmth without overheating.

Designed with practicality & versatility in mind, this cardigan features a classic crew neck, and a full front opening with football buttons – making it perfect for layering with other items in your wardrobe, such as a classic shirt and some chinos for a polished look, or with floral skirts and vintage boots if you want to create a cottage-core look. The front pockets provide a convenient way to carry your essentials, and the ribbed cuffs and hem ensure a snug and comfortable fit for anyone.

This women’s Aran cardigan is designed in Ireland by Aran Woollen Mills, a guarantee of excellent craftsmanship and authenticity. With its culturally-inspired and extremely versatile design, this cardigan makes a great gift choice that’s sure to leave a lasting impression.
