Frequently Asked Questions About Irish Fisherman Sweaters
What is a Fisherman Sweater?
Fisherman sweaters are the original Aran sweater which was made for the fishermen on the Aran Islands in County Galway.
What is the history of the fisherman sweater?
Irish Fisherman sweaters were handmade by the wives and daughters of the fishermen on Inishmore, Inishmaan and Inisheer which are all part of the Aran islands off the West Coast of Ireland. They were made from untreated wool which was waterproof and gave much-needed protection to the fishermen from the harsh weather conditions from the wild Atlantic.
Are fisherman sweaters itchy?
This is a common question we get asked a lot. None of our fisherman sweaters or Aran sweaters are itchy as they are made with merino wool which is soft. As the fibres of wool are quite fine and smaller in size than other wool. As the wool is quite flexible this allows wool to move better and fit the body which stops any itchiness.
