This cozy merino wool sweater is a virtual sampler of Irish Aran knitting patterns. Each pattern symbolizes an aspect of local fishing culture: Celtic rope for Irish pride; fisherman's cable for safety on the waters; basket stitch for a plentiful catch; and diamond, the shape of a fishing net, for success. The warm wool is renowned for its extremely soft hand, providing warmth and comfort without the itch of lower-quality fibers.

For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.

Aster Alpaca Sweater
Aster Alpaca Sweater
(Based on 8 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

In the Andean Altiplano of Peru, artisans have been knitting with soft, lightweight alpaca fiber for centuries. Aymara and Quechua artisans in Peru use an alpaca blend to create a dark brown cardigan with a blue and turquoise pattern of asters flowing from the hem and sleeves. A single bloom graces the back of the sweater. Made entirely on hand looms, the sweater is embellished with hand-knit scalloping at the cuffs and hem, and hand-painted ceramic buttons. Light, soft, easily packable, and wrinkle resistant.

(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

Our lightweight boiled-wool cardigan makes a crisp addition to your wardrobe in a rich red hue that will brighten any winter day. A blend of soft baby alpaca fiber and sheep’s wool is “boiled” in a process similar to felting to create a fabric denser than a knitted sweater, making it warmer and more wind-resistant. Hand-embroidered designs inspired by the kantuta, Peru’s national flower, decorate the front. One-button clasp at the neckline.
