Aran Sweaters like the ones from Shamrock Gift are named after the Aran Islands situated off the west coast of Ireland, where the best quality clothing in the world is produced (especially if you ask the local people of the Island!) The Sweaters originated from this rugged and craggy set of three islands of the west coast of Ireland. The men of the island would wear them as they ventured out into the Atlantic Ocean to fish it.
Aran knitters have created some of the best quality hand knit sweaters in the world, originally believed to be based on an old weaving tradition that goes way back to the early Celtic tribe but is actually a style that comes from Guernsey. A typical Aran Jumper is white or cream in colour, with cable designs radiating out from the body and sleeves. In contrast to other types of knitwear, these sweaters are created by hand, by highly skilled artisans who spend countless hours knitting a uniform just for the garment.
Many of the world famous designers have their products made in the island of Aran. There is no doubt that this sweater is in great demand and the Irish people are known for loving and wearing them. These aran sweaters are available from every major garment manufacturer. You can also look for great bargains online as well as many websites which specialise in the sale of these sweaters.
