Looking for an Irish cable knit sweater? Ireland is famous for it’s aran sweaters and traditional cable knitting. Originally aran sweaters were knitted from heavy wool with a lot of natural oils. It was the oil in the wool that made the sweater somewhat waterproof and warm for the fisherman. Those of us who remember the old fashioned aran sweaters of our childhood days also recall the itchy, heavy wool. Nowadays the wool is finer whilst still retaining the unique and intricate cable stitching.
