Our selection of wool scarves in the Aran knitting style was inspired by heirloom knitwear made in the Aran Islands and features traditional Irish knitting techniques once worn by fisherman in the west of Ireland. Initially, sweaters for the island's fishermen to keep them warm and dry during their day-long trips on the choppy Atlantic seas were intended to be knitted in such elaborate designs.

Learn More Before Buying

A SuperSoft Merino Cable Scarf is a stylish and cozy addition to your wardrobe because the raised diamond, cable, and honeycomb patterns served not only as decoration but also as extra insulation for the sweaters by allowing air to pass through the wool and wick moisture away from the body while keeping dry, heated air in.

In order to make the original sweaters nearly completely waterproof, the wool would have also been knit with the sheep’s natural, water-resistant lanolin grease still present. While preserving the history and customs of rural Ireland in their lovely patterns, they are now knit with some of the softest wools available anywhere in the world.
