About Our Irish Wool Scarves
Irish wool scarves still function largely the same manner today, and they also preserve the history of one of Ireland’s last remaining cottage industries. When you give an Aran scarf, you are giving the gift of a beautifully crafted piece of Irish design inspired by Irish tradition and history.
Chunky knits, super soft merino wool, or classic Aran Fisherman knits all have their time and place, depending on how cold the weather is and your style preference. As part of your winter wardrobe refresh, we recommend retiring those itchy wool scarves your mom used to wrap around your neck and stocking up on a few of these cold weather must haves.
Merino wool is well-liked for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that it is the King of wools. Merino wool is not only warm and soft, but also less likely to irritate sensitive skin because its fibers are lighter than those of other sheep.
A men’s neck scarf is typically called a “scarf”. However, some people may also refer to it as a “neck scarf” or a “neckerchief”.
The traditional way to wear an Irish scarf is to drape it around your neck with the ends hanging down in front. You can then cross the ends in front and tuck them behind your back, or tie them together at the back of your neck. Some people also like to knot the scarf around their neck.
