The Traditional Mens Crew Neck Aran Sweater is part of the original design made by the Aran. These sweater’s features were designed with their way of living in mind. The inhabitants of the Aran Islands located off the West coast of Galway Bay in Ireland were fishermen and farmers. The original Aran sweaters had definitive cable patterns that ran on the sleeves and body of the sweater. These sweaters were originally woven unscoured to preserve the sheep’s natural lanoline oil that made them water resistant. An aspect that protected them from the harsh elements they experienced at sea fishing.
The Aran sweaters are popular for their stitches. These stitches to the common eye might look appealing but hold deep symbolic meaning to the natives of Aran Islands. The Traditional Mens Crew Neck Aran Sweater features the iconic honeycomb stitch, which is symbolicof the bee and the result of its hard work. It represents good luck. It also features the diamond stitch which is symbolic of the seaweed farms in Aran islands as well as the shapes of the nets used by fishermen out at sea. The diamond stitch represents good fortune. Together these stitches form an appealing pattern as well as a hidden message.
