We’ve taken a look at some of the more popular Aran sweaters available so you can get an idea about what you’re looking for.
Aran sweaters are generally made from a blend of Merino wool, cotton and high quality polyester. The Aran jumpers are a very popular style of men’s jumper which takes its name from the Aran islands off the west coast of Ireland. A typical Aran sweater is white in colour, with Merino wool cable designs on the back and sleeves. A common Aran sweater would include an area neck with a collar and buttons at the cuffs and this is how it got its name. These sweaters are very comfortable as they allow air to circulate which makes them a good quality product. Many people prefer to wear Aran sweaters when they go out in the cold as they do tend to keep you warm and not constrict your body too much.
As mentioned above, Aran sweaters come in a number of different colors, styles and designs. If you’re looking for something a little bit more unique, there are a number of hand knit Aran jumpers available as well. They are extremely popular with the locals of the west coast counties of Mayo, Kerry and Galway in Ireland and many people have taken to wearing them, especially during the winter months as they are extremely warm and keep the body feeling relaxed.
