The term Aran comes from the Irish word Aran which means “west wind” since this is where the main islands of Aran lie. The sweater is made from wool and these sweaters can be worn in any season. They make for great outerwear garments that can be paired with almost anything.

The design of a typical Aran sweater is actually quite simple: the neck is laced up to a band at the front and the rest of the body is knit or crocheted according to the design. The only traditional stitch used is the garter stitch, which means that all the stitches are worked around the edge of the area fabric using a garter pin. This is done across the entire sweater body so that the neckline is hidden. The aran sweaters of today, such as the ones from Shamrock Gift are usually manufactured by machine but there are also handcrafted varieties which are available.
