Hi everyone. I hope you all had a good week. Well the autumn chill is well and truly settling in here in Ireland. As we take out the sweaters and cardigans for another year, I thought I’d share some of my favorite Irish accessories here at The Irish Store to add the perfect finishing touch to your fall/winter look.
Lulu’s Top 5 Irish Accessories
1. Classic Irish Aran Hat And Scarf Set
So as far as I’m concerned, a good quality wool hat and scarf set is essential for any winter wardrobe. This one is a real winner and comes from our brand new fall/winter collection. The yarn is beautifully soft merino wool and the craftsmanship is second to none. It features the classic cable stitch as well as honeycomb, the stitch of good fortune. Finally, it comes in three irresistible colours; soft grey, classic cream and my personal favourite, a gorgeous mid-blue (pictured above).
2. Blue Gray Check Irish Flat Cap
Next on our list of Irish accessories is for the guys and it’s a true classic. There’s nothing like a well made Irish flat cap to give him that classic country casual look that never dates. This one also forms part of our new collection at The Irish Store. Like all our Irish flat caps for him, it comes from the expert weavers at Mucros of County Kerry. The dark grey luxurious pure wool fabric features a blue overcheck and it’s fully lined. A gorgeous Irish gift for him.
3. Aran Bobble Hat
Next up is another offering from our new collection and it’s right on trend. The design features an eye-catching oversized cable stitch and a faux fur mink colored bobble. Available in classic cream, soft gray or a gorgeous green (pictured). It’s beautifully crafted from super soft merino wool and guaranteed to keep those winter chills at bay.
4. The Emily Tweed Bag
In the heart of County Kerry, you’ll find Mucros Weavers, makers of the finest tweeds. Their Emily bag combines age-old craftsmanship with a modern design so you’ll be accessorizing in true Irish style. This is the perfect everyday purse and is finely crafted from genuine leather and 3 choices of beautifully woven wool tweeds. The gray (pictured) is a great neutral shade and complements any outfit.
5. Pom Pom Aran Hat
So last on our list of Irish accessories is another wool hat (you may have noticed they feature very highly on this list! I just love them and have quite a collection!). The Aran Pom Pom hat is right on trend and I just love the 3 button detail. The yarn is super soft, easy to wear merino wool and the workmanship is second none with beautifully detailed Aran stitch patterns. Choose classic cream or a rich jade green.
