Brrrr! We’re starting to feel a chill in the air at The Irish Store. And lucky for us, Irish knitwear is the best thing for keeping us warm yet cool all season long. Famous for its quality, craftsmanship and style the world over, there is nothing better than an Irish sweater for beating colder weather. Here is the best of the best to help you cozy up to fall.
1. Everyone needs a boyfriend cardigan
The boyfriend cardigan is a big hit at The Irish Store. And it’s easy to see why. Cozy, comfy, cute, and knit with the best Irish wool, this is our customers’ favourite choice for fall. The boyfriend cardigan’s relaxed fit and on-trend style make it perfect for transitioning into the chilly seasons. Features include a deep v neck shape with football buttons and pockets.
2. Nail the basics with a roll neck
This sweater is an Irish twist on the essential fall staple – the roll neck aran sweater. Crafted with traditional Aran stitch patterns, the sweater features side vents for cozy casual wear.
3. The shawl that covers day and night
Fall isn’t freezing in every state, we know! The Celtic shawl is a great choice for milder winters and can be worn as a pretty accessory over evening outfits.
4. Loving the lumber cardigan
Every fall calls for a traditional Irish cardigan. And it doesn’t get more traditional than the lumber – a rugged cardigan knit from traditional Aran stitching patterns. Worn with jeans, for styling that brings a traditional Irish piece instantly up-to-date.
5. Wrap yourself in comfort with an Irish woollen shawl
Layers are a clever way to combat swiftly changing temperatures. Made from the softest 100% Merino wool, this shawl can be draped over any outfit for an extra layer of warmth. Cozy pockets, fringe details and the classic Aran cable stitch help this shawl stand out from the crowd.
6. One button wonder
This one-button cardigan is the perfect choice for those of us who are in love with Aran knitwear and in search of something a little different. The wide collar keeps chills at bay and the single button allows for an easy-to-wear piece.
7. Go from fall to winter in a cowl-neck cape
The cowl neck cape is an unusual way to add an extra layer of warmth for fall without adding bulk. Wear over lighter tops to combat sudden drops in temperature.
8. Classic cardigan coat
Fall calls for pieces that are warmer than an ordinary cardigan yet cooler than a coat for indoors wearing – that’s when we need the cardigan coat! This cardigan’s cape collar adds a touch of Irish elegance for a tailored but comfortable look. We’ve also heard that the cardigan’s length and vertical stitches make us look taller and slimmer than unusual – bonus points.
9. Cable knit with Celtic knot zip
Zip up and go with this sporty take on the traditional Aran cardigan. Easy to wear, this cable knit cardigan is perfect for zipping around town for lunch, shopping and chores. Special features include a cozy double collar and a Trinity Knot zip.
10. Cute and casual short belted cape
Here’s an Irish cape, designed specifically for daywear. Crafted from gorgeous black and white real Irish tweed, the belted style is a whole new way to wear the classic Irish cape.
11. The ‘It’s worth it’ investment cape
This green pure wool country walking cape is the centrepiece of our fall collection. Crafted with double face loden cloth that is woven from 100% pure wool, this cape is a luxury piece that will last a lifetime. Our customers tell us that this much-loved cape returns its investment in style and timeless craftsmanship.
12. Top your outfit off with an Irish tweed cap
Don’t forget your accessories this fall. Hats, scarfs, gloves are essential for keeping the cold at bay. This Irish wool cap is pretty and practical, featuring a cute decorative flower. Also available in a variety of vibrant colours for a brighter winter season.
13. Essential silk scarf
A lighter piece for a milder fall, this fine Shamrock silk scarf is of the highest quality. It can also be worn in the evening to add an Irish touch to formal outfits. The design, inspired by the Book of Kells, is sure to get a nod and a wink from friends of Irish heritage.
14. He deserves a winter warmer too
The Aran sweater was first knit by women from the islands off the coast of Ireland to keep their husbands warm and dry at sea. Do the same for your loved ones, by sending them a new authentic Irish sweater for him this fall. This crew neck Aran sweater is crafted from 100% Merino wool. A customer favourite, the Irish sweater features an intricate blend of honeycomb stitching along with the centre panel and cable stitching on each side.
15. Wrap him up in Irish accessories
Irish flat cap is a staple of the Irish fall and winter seasons, seen on men all over the Irish countryside. We teamed the traditional cap with a jaunty scarf made from 100% Alpaca wool for a truly authentic Irish look.
