Details

Stay cozy indoors or out with this thigh-length Aran knit sweater. These iconic symbols of Ireland's northern Aran Islands are well known for their intricate stitches and symbolism. In this flattering cardigan, the honeycomb stitch symbolizes the hard work of the honeybee and the rewards of an industrious life. The cable stitch stands in for the fishing rope that was so essential to livelihood on the islands. The sweater is knit from 100% merino wool, with a wide collar and a button front.

"What Ive Wanted Forever"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is exactly the sweater Ive dreamed of having but couldnt afford. Through Novica the cost was significantly lower. I just received my sweater and its perfect. I love it. The wool is so soft and at the same time substancial. I felt wrapped in a loving hug when I tried it on. And its also true to size. One minor thing: In the photo the green appears to be a bit olive but in person its forest green. I still love it and will wear it for the rest of my life.

Best Uses

  • I live in the northern mountains of New Mexico where we have very cold winters
  • This sweater will keep me warm

"Truly lovely quality sweater with a rich look"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

After reading the other reviews, I can agree that the sweater probably runs what some would consider loose. However, I think that is part of the look of this sweater and to wear it more snugly would ruin the hang and the look. It is not heavy when you wear it, but theres no lack of material or cheap feel of a skimpy wool. The knitting is wonderful; intricate with varying patterns that add to the fine quality look. I thought even the buttons were well chosen for a classic, timeless appearance. Versatile, too. It can be worn casually or more dressed up. I purchased the Natural and the color is excellent - not too white, not too yellow. Ill be able to wear this with nearly any other color. Warm enough to be very useful, but not so heavy that it needs to be frigid to be worn. Im very happy with this purchase. There was no issue with an unusual smell with my sweater.

"Love it!"

I ordered the green. The wool is soft, the color is gorgeous, and the fit is perfect. As a tall woman, I especially appreciate being able to order an XXL. I loved it so much, i ordered another one in grey.

"Beautiful sweater - a must have for cold weather"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased this sweater and I'm thrilled with it. It is extremely warm and the stitching is intricate. The fit is loose which makes it very comfortable. I thought I would try the green sweater for something different and I really like it. It is a darker green than expected but still beautiful. I absolutely love this sweater.

"A Must Have"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

If you are considering buying this sweater do not hesitate. The garment is impeccably made with twelve intricate stitches. It looks so much better in person. It wears well and could reasonably become an heirloom piece. There is value in craftsmanship and quality materials. I live in Colorado. We have cold winters. This sweater is warm. It takes the bite out of wind and cold. It may also especially appeal to anyone with Irish ancestry who seeks a tangible connection with that heritage.
