About Our Wraps, Ponchos, Capes & Shawls
Each piece is made from natural and sustainable fibers and because of this they are breathable and water resistant.
The traditional Irish jumper has a round neck, an extremely tight mesh, and is composed of pure virgin sheep wool, which is naturally ecru in color. It provides weather protection and maintains a cozy warmth. Sweaters made by hand were genuine works of art. Each sweater took up to 60 days to make and required more than 100,000 seams.
One in particular, the SuperSoft Merino Wool Poncho with Cowl Neck, has a traditional poncho frame that elegantly drapes over the body and is finished with a thick, broad cowl neck collar that not only adds additional warmth for the neck but also adds some rich volume and regal flair to the overall look. Any woman would enjoy the Irish Cable Pattern Pocket Shawl for a stylish yet useful new twist on the shawl.
This item stands out in the fashion world because, while it wraps around the shoulders like a conventional shawl, it also has a split pattern over the elbows, two wide panels that run down the front, and pockets that keep the hands toasty. The shawl’s bottom front hem is embellished with a fringe trim for whimsy.
The moss stitch, which represents growth and also symbolizes carrageenan moss, the seaweed that lines the stone walls of the Aran Islands, is one of the more well-known Aran stitches. Another is the zigzag, which represents the cliffs of the Aran Islands and the west of Ireland. These are some of the more well-known Aran stitches. Other common stitches are the cable, which stands in for prayers for safety and good fortune in a fisherman’s daily life, the diamond, which signifies a blessing for abundance and success, and the basket, which represents the fisherman’s basket for good luck in making numerous catches.
