Womens Aran Sweaters are among the best-selling sweater styles all over the world and you can find them from Shamrock Gift. There are some stories that state the jumpers were first worn by Irish fishermen on the Isles of Aran and were designed by their wives with each one being unique in style to the family. They can be found in a variety of colours with white being the most traditional and cable stitching throughout the jumper.
Some of the best-selling Aran sweaters have honeycomb stitches, where the bottom part of the sweater is composed of a series of stitches knit in a specific pattern. As well as jumpers you can also find cardigans and v-neck vests in the same stylings as the aran sweaters. It is the tight knit stitching that gives the jumpers its well known design and also what helps to keep the wearer nice and warm.
Although the traditional colours tend to be white, cream and navy you can find them in almost any colour imaginable and available for men, women and children alike. There are knitting patterns from the 80s and 90s that have pictures of entire families wearing these styles of sweaters. Today lots of people are styling them in a number of different ways, from traditional jumpers through oversized tops that can be worn as dresses for women.
