Hi everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend. Today I’m kicking off our countdown to St. Patrick’s Day with the spotlight on our collection of Aran sweaters in quintessentially Irish green. Even though the festivities will be virtual again this year, it’s still never too early to plan your St. Patty’s Day outfit for those at home celebrations!
Top 5 St. Patrick’s Day Sweaters
1. Traditional Aran Sweater
This is a timeless classic and our most popular Aran sweater for him or her. First worn by Aran Islander fishermen, the classic crew neck never dates. When Hollywood royalty such as Grace Kelly and Steve Mc Queen appeared in Aran sweaters in the 50s and 60s, this humble Irish garment became an iconic style classic. That enduring appeal continues to this day. And we’re loving these two gorgeous shades of green! Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.
2. Girls Cara Aran Sweater
We’re dressing the whole family so here’s our first for the little ones! Beautifully crafted in easy to wear merino yarn and featuring exquisitely detailed Aran stitch patterns. The cable neck is a beautiful detail and the green shade is adorable.
3. Boys Crew Neck Aran Sweater
The classic Aran sweater for little boys! He’ll certainly look the part this St. Patrick’s Day in this gorgeous boy’s Aran sweater. Featuring a classic crew neck and exquisitely crafted honeycomb and cable stitches. Made from beautifully soft merino wool for ultimate comfort.
4. Ladies Glenveagh Aran Zip Cardigan
The beauty of the hugely popular Glenveagh Aran cardigan for her is that it combines stunning traditional Aran craft with a thoroughly modern design. It comes with a stylish side zipper fastening and a beautifully crafted Trinity knot zip pull.
5. Ardmore Shawl Collar Aran Sweater
My final pick is a gorgeous Aran cardigan for him. The main stitch in this beautifully crafted cardigan is the diamond, a representation of the Islander fisherman’s nets and said to ensure a plentiful catch at sea. It also features a classic cable stitch, traditional wooden football buttons and a super stylish shawl collar. Best of all, it’s exclusive to The Irish Store so you won’t find it anywhere else!
