Hi everyone. I hope I find you all well this week. It’s so lovely to see the days getting longer. warmer and sunnier (sometimes!) here in Ireland. While most of us have packed away our Aran sweaters for the colder months, there are many styles here at The Irish Store which make the perfect keep warm layer for spring summer evenings and bracing beach walks. Here’s 5 of my favorites from The Irish Store Collection.
The Spring Summer Aran Edit
1. The Streedagh Aran Gilet
This stylish gilet features stunning Aran stitch work and is crafted using the finest merino yarn in irresistible shades of soft green, rich navy or our bestselling charcoal gray (pictured). It also takes its name from the stunning Streedagh beach in my favorite County Sligo.
It also comes in a version for him too!
2. The Mulroy Sleeveless Aran Sweater
So next up we have this beautiful sleeveless Aran sweater in luxurious Donegal melange yarn. The combination of wool, cotton, cashmere and silk make this a joy to wear and the light and airy yarn is perfect for spring summer. It takes its name from Mulroy Bay on the stunning Rosguill Peninsula in County Donegal.
3. The Derrynane Diamond Aran Cardigan
My next pick is a modern and effortlessly stylish take on the Aran cardigan. Like the Mulroy Sweater it is beautifully crafted from Donegal melange yarn and features batwing sleeves and an open front. It comes in warm sunset or denim blue shades and takes its name from Derrynane Beach in County Kerry, often hailed as one of the finest in Ireland.
4. The Killala Aran Vest
Add a touch of true elegance to your spring summer look with our on-trend Killala Aran vest. The fit is relaxed and boxy with an oversized ribbed hem and side vents. Comes in two irresistible shades; pearl grey or light apple.
5. The Mourne Crew Neck Aran Sweater
My final pick is one for him and it’s a real winner. It comes in a luxurious light and airy cotton/lambswool yarn. The design takes inspiration from the traditional Aran zig-zag stitch which is said to represent the twisting Aran Island paths leading down to the Atlantic.
Take care of yourselves and each other,
