Hi everyone. I hope I find you all well. So as the days turn cooler it’s time to spruce up that fall/winter wardrobe. I’m excited to be launching our new collection in the coming weeks but in the meantime, here are my top 5 Irish knits from the current Irish Store collection.
Lulu’s Top 5 Irish Knits
1. Hooded Aran Zipper Coat
When it comes to Irish knits, this one is a real winner. Our best selling Aran cardigan for her ticks all the right boxes. This age-old Irish craftsmanship combines beautifully with an unmistakably modern design to create a stand-out everyday Aran sweater made from luxuriously soft merino wool. Featuring 2 side pockets and a snug hood to keep out the chill, there’s also a final irresistible Celtic touch with a beautifully detailed Trinity knot zipper.
2. Traditional Mens Aran Sweater
So next up it’s one for the guys. This is Aran knitwear at it’s finest and the classic crew neck has stood the test of time. The design is unashamedly traditional with the honeycomb stitch taking centre stage. Crafted from beautifully soft merino yarn in colors inspired by the west of Ireland landscape, from rich greens to soft Atlantic blues.
3. Ladies Aran Boyfriend Cardigan
Number 3 on my top Irish knits list is the classic Aran boyfriend cardigan. The boyfriend cardigan is an enduring classic combining oversized comfort with relaxed, effortless style. What makes our design stand out is the winning combination of traditional Aran stitches, with the basket stitch in the main body. This stitch symbolizes the Islander fisherman’s baskets and hopes of a plentiful catch at sea. It is beautifully trimmed with classic cable, a tribute to the fisherman’s ropes.
4. Mens Half Zip Irish Aran Sweater
Next on our list of Irish knits is this best selling Aran sweater for him. The traditional Irish craftsmanship combines beautifully with a fresh modern design. There’s a stylish ribbed collar which can be worn up or down. Then there’s the final finishing touch of a smart tan leather zip pull. Beautifully crafted from the softest merino wool.
5. The Ardara Cable Sweater
So finally it’s our stunning Ardara cable sweater for her. Here we have a striking oversized cable in the main body trimmed with finer cable stitch patterns at the sides and neck. The design is gently flared at the bottom, creating a flattering line at the hips. Then there’s the choice of gorgeous colors in soft merino wool; classic cream, toasted oatmeal or meadow green.
