Carraig Donn Irish knitwear was founded in 1982 and is based out of the small town of Westport in Co. Mayo. A family run company, they are one of Ireland’s largest knitwear manufacturers. Using the highest quality and softest wool each sweater is handmade and knitted in Ireland. Carraig Donn focuses heavily on using authentic Irish materials and ensuring each of their products is representative to those knitted by Irish women hundreds of years ago, which is why we here at The Irish Store and many others across Ireland and around the world love their knitwear pieces so much.
The Aran sweater is significant to Ireland and even more famous than the Islands it originated from. Not many items of clothing hold such strong connections to its place of origin or have such strong historical attachments. The Aran sweater holds a piece of many people’s hearts and is often a souvenir treasured by tourists visiting Ireland. The Irish Store allows you to purchase a little piece of Ireland from anywhere in the world with our huge collection of Irish sweaters.
The Carraig Donn range draws its inspiration from the natural landscape of the West of Ireland to create a style that blends quality and tradition with the latest designs and fashions. Carraig Donn has created beautiful womens Irish knitwear, mens Irish knitwear and kids Irish knitwear so there is something for everyone!
