Dear Readers & Valued Customers,
I do hope you are all keeping safe and well during these challenging times.
I know, like me, you are all thinking about the vulnerable as well as your family, colleagues and friends during these worrying times, and doing what you can to help those who need it most.
I am also thinking about you, our customers and our wider Irish Store community. I hope you are all keeping well and that you stay safe over the coming weeks until this turbulent time passes. Here in Ireland, we are adjusting to this new world, spending a lot of time with our direct family with no socialising – and no pubs!
We are doing what we can to keep The Irish Store family safe, with all our office team working successfully remotely.
I wanted to reassure you that we are here, as always, for all of our customers, to answer your emails or phone calls with any questions you may have.
Our warehouse team, are working shifts, keeping their social distance and following all other World Health Organisation recommendations.
We will also continue to do whatever we can to support our indigenous Irish suppliers at this time – many of whom are small family businesses like our own.
We will do our utmost to keep our website trading and warehouse in operation, so we can continue to deliver a little bit of Ireland to you and, as a result, hopefully bring a warm Irish smile to your face and those closest to you.
As always, thank you for being such loyal readers & customers and supporting our business – we really do appreciate it. Please look after yourself and your family.
Coinnigh go maith,
Lulu, Founder of The Irish Store
How do I care for my Aran sweater? Dry clean or wash in washing machine?
See below for our advice on washing your Aran sweater;
The golden rule is to wash your garment as seldom as possible and air frequently. We call this ‘wind-washing’.
Hang your garment out in the air and you will be amazed at how fresh it becomes. Never machine wash; they should be washed by hand using wool washing detergent and in cool water below 30 degrees Celsius. Always dry your jumper flat and never put it in a tumble dryer.
Hope this helps,
