  • An Aran wool blanket is a luxurious and cozy blanket crafted from high-quality Aran wool, renowned for its warmth and durability. The Aran wool used in these blankets comes from sheep bred on the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, where the harsh weather conditions contribute to the production of a soft and insulating wool that is ideal for creating warm and comfortable blankets.

    Aran wool blankets are distinguished by their intricate cable knit patterns, inspired by the traditional Aran knitting techniques that have been passed down through generations. These patterns are not only beautiful but also add texture and depth to the blanket, creating a visually striking and timeless design.

    The natural properties of Aran wool make these blankets exceptionally warm and cozy, providing insulation and comfort during cold weather. The wool is soft to the touch and has a luxurious feel that enhances the overall quality of the blanket.

    In addition to its warmth and comfort, an Aran wool blanket embodies the rich heritage and craftsmanship of Irish knitting traditions. Each blanket is a work of art, meticulously crafted by skilled artisans who take pride in creating high-quality, handmade pieces that showcase the beauty of Aran wool and the artistry of Irish knitwear.

    An Aran wool blanket not only serves as a practical and functional item for keeping warm but also as a luxurious and decorative addition to any home. Whether draped over a sofa or used as a bedspread, an Aran wool blanket adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room, while also showcasing the time-honored craft of Aran knitting.

    like Ireland's enchanting coastlines, the 100%  Irish Merino wool, Aran Patchwork Blanket tells many stories through its stitches.
  • A combination of traditional diamond stitch, honeycomb, and a variety of cable stitches, all part of Ireland's traditional original  Irish Aran knitwear.

    • When washing your knitwear pieces, it's important to wash them one at a time to avoid any colour mixing.
    • You should never wring or scrub your wool knitwear as this can cause pilling and stretching.: It's important not to hang your knitwear and wool sweaters to dry as this will cause stretching. If your knitwear needs to be reshaped, do this while it is still damp.
    • If you are storing your knitwear away for the summer, put a sachet of lavender in with it, this will keep any little bugs away!



    Aran stitches are traditional patterns used in Aran knitting, originating from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. These stitches are renowned for their intricate designs and symbolic meanings. Some common Aran stitches include:

    1.  Cable Stitch: This stitch resembles twisted ropes or cables and symbolizes the ropes used by fishermen. It represents a wish for a fruitful catch and safety at sea.

    2.  Diamond Stitch: The diamond stitch symbolizes the small, fertile fields of the Aran Islands and is often associated with prosperity and success in farming.

    3.  Honeycomb Stitch: This stitch resembles the honeycomb of bees and represents hard work, diligence, and the rewards of labor.

    4.  Basket Stitch: The basketweave stitch mimics the woven patterns of baskets and symbolizes the fisherman's basket, representing a wish for a bountiful catch.

    5.  Trinity Stitch: Also known as the Blackberry or the Bramble stitch.  Holy Trinity: The name "Trinity stitch" itself suggests a connection to the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In this interpretation, the three-dimensional texture created by the stitch may symbolize the unity and interconnectedness of these divine entities. Celtic Knots: The intricate design of the Trinity stitch resembles traditional Celtic knotwork, which is rich in symbolism and often represents themes such as eternity, continuity, and interconnectedness. In this context, the Trinity stitch may symbolize the eternal cycles of life, death, and rebirth, as well as the interconnectedness of all living beings. Natural Elements: Some interpretations suggest that the Trinity stitch symbolizes elements of the natural world, such as berries or seeds. In Celtic folklore, berries are often associated with fertility, abundance, and the cycle of life, making them potent symbols of growth and renewal.
    1.   Irish Moss Stitch:  The moss stitch can symbolize growth, resilience, and the ability to thrive in challenging environments, reflecting the resilience and resourcefulness of the islanders who historically wore Aran sweaters.
    1.  Zig Zag Stitch: The diamond pattern can symbolize a fisherman's net or the mesh of a lobster pot, signifying a wish for a fruitful catch and abundance at sea. Overall, the zigzag or diamond stitch in Aran sweaters reflects the deep connection to nature, livelihoods, and cultural heritage of the communities on the Aran Islands, embodying themes of prosperity, interconnectedness, and the cycles of life.
