ARAN IRISH WOOL SWEATERS

Aran Irish Wool Sweaters:  Long ago in Ireland, the Galway women knitted the first Aran sweaters as a protective layer for islander fishermen and farmers.   The skill involved in these sweaters cannot be underestimated:   Each sweater is a work of art containing about 100,000 painstakingly constructed stitches.  Totally fashionable, this sweater was chosen in New York as one of 111 clothing items that have influenced fashion over the last 100 years.  We love these sweaters.
