Irish Handknit Crewneck Sweater.

These guys set the bar when it comes to 100% wool sweaters. Built for life and will become a family heirloom if kept properly. They are timeless pieces and are always in vogue. They are of course unisex sweaters.

Our Handknit Irish Crewneck Sweaters are all handknit in County Cork, Ireland, taking up to 60 hours to knit an individual sweater. All our sweaters are knit using 100% Irish Wool yarn from County Donegal. Each sweater has a hang tag identifying who knit that particular sweater.

This time honored craft uses traditional patterns incuding the cable stitch, the diamond stitch, the zig zag stitch and the honeycomb stitch.

  • The Cable Stitch - Representing the Fisherman's ropes.
  • The Diamond Stitch - Representing the samll fields on The Aran Islands and also the Fisherman's nets.
  • The Zig Zag Stitch -  Sometimes known as Marriage Lines, can be used to represent the typical highs and low of matrimony and marriage life.
  • The Honeycomb Stitch -  Signifying the bee, is often used to represent both hard work and its rewards. The honeycomb stitch may be included as a symbol of good luck, signifying plenty.
