Irish fishermen’s sweaters from more than a century ago feature a variety of styles, which are highlighted by the various cable knit patterns. One of the most iconic patterns in Irish design, these patterns were initially created to offer additional insulation for rural fisherman in the Aran Islands to protect them from the ferocious Atlantic winds. Available in Natural, Charcoal, Navy, and Kelly Green, four classic colors. For a coordinated look, pair it with our matching Cable Knit Wool Hat!
The incredibly intricate cable knit patterns have been around for decades, and it’s believed that they mimic the ropes worn by Irish fishermen in their sweaters to shield them from the Atlantic winds. The scarf has ribbed finishing on both ends.
This sweater is made entirely of merino wool and has been pre-treated to make it feel incredibly soft. It will keep you warm and cozy throughout winter. Available in Kelly Green, Natural, Charcoal, Navy, and can be worn with the Cable Knit Wool Hat for a full ensemble.
