Men's 100% Irish Wool Sweater

This men’s wool sweater is made in Ireland using authentic Aran stitching patterns. The material is 100 percent Worsted Wool. On the outside, the wool is a light neutral color. On the inside, the wool is black and very soft for added comfort. Its thickness creates insulation and helps keep the wearer warm in cool to cold temperatures. When paired with a long-sleeve shirt underneath, this stylish sweater can be substituted for a jacket. The unique Aran pattern gives it a versatile enough style that it can be worn with dressy slacks or even casual denim pants. This sweater’s excellent quality makes it a long-lasting garment that every man can appreciate. Buy it to add to a personal wardrobe or to give as a gift.

The wool used for this sweater comes from sheep living in high altitudes. Their wool is used because of its softness, lightness and insulation qualities. Sheep at higher altitudes have wool that blocks out the cold better. However, it is still lightweight enough to make this sweater comfortable and not too heavy. The softness of the wool makes it cozy and warm.

People who are familiar with Aran patterns will recognize this technique on the sweater. Aran stitching is an old art form. It was originally started in the Aran island region of Ireland. In that region, most people were fishermen. They had to spend days and weeks on rough and cold seas. For this reason, they needed warm, lightweight and resilient clothing. The thick stitches of these types of sweaters provided what they needed. Different patterns were used in different areas of the island region to identify where people were from.
