The main stitch here is the diamond, a depiction of the Islander fisherman’s nets and said to be knitted into Aran sweaters of old to ensure a plentiful catch at sea. It’s filled with the moss stitch, named after the Carrageen moss seaweed which was collected by the Island dwellers. The age old stitch patterns gave us the timeless design so all we had to do was give this gorgeous men’s cardigan a little bit of an update to perfectly blend traditional Aran craftsmanship with modern styling. It fastens up into a classic v-neck with football buttons and there’s a neat shawl collar and two-front pockets to keep out the chill. Then there’s the yarn- soft merino. A pleasure to wear. Crafted in Westport, County Mayo.

My Mother's hand knit sweaters kept me warm all my life. She's long gone now but this sweater is every bit as fine as she ever made and could not be finer.
Our brother LOVED his sweater and wears it proudly!!! Great quality at a great price. I will definitely order from The Irish Store again! (p.s. Also appreciate this short survey!)
Great quality and style.
Loved the product, but taxes, duty and postage charged make items too expensive, even when in sale, to purchase from your site.
It is a nice sweater. Buttons to button holes are too tight.
I have gotten compliments on the sweater.
I enjoy the warmth of the cardigan during these cold winter days; tonight it's supposed to get down to 5-6 degrees. But, spring will soon be here!
beautifully made products - would have liked a little more info on sizing...i.e. "runs small" "large" etc...
Not as thick as I would have hoped. Also seemed small for it's labeled size.
I found a few dropped stitches but decided I could do the repair. The patterns are beautiful, I always find some of the buttons need to be tightened, I really like their sweaters, the yarns are beautiful rich colors.
The quality of the sweater was as good or better than the catalog described..
Beautiful, great quality, this was a gift and he loved it!
Stitching was not tight and the shawl collar torn apart in several spots. Item had to be returned.
This was a gift and the grandson who received it was thrilled with it!!
I thought the stitching on the sweater was too loose. In the picture it looked tightly done. The color was very nice.
My future son in law is very happy with the fit and style of sweater
Excellent product and fast shipping!
Product arrived in great condition. Pleased with it. It was pictured on the site as it presented in reality.
Very nice on the phone
Cardigan was well made and my father loved it!
Wished the product was a bit thicker, chunkier. Your service was good though. Thank You
I received my order in good condition and on time. It is a gift and has not been opened yet.
QUICK SHIP AND SUPERB PRODUCTS.
Absolutely beautiful sweater. Bought for Xmas present for husband. It was delivered in a timely manner to Texas. Have not had to deal with customer service, so can't comment on that. Comes with laundering instructions too! I will probably order again from this company. I'm a happy camper and I'm sure my husband will live his sweater. The sizing looks true to size to me too.
My husband just loved his sweater.
Excellent quality & workmanship. A very handsome sweater.
This sweater was such a disappointment. It was the same price as the sweater coat but was no where near the same quality. The body of the sweater was bagged at the bottom and its weight was very thin in comparison. In addition, the button holes were never finished, instead, they were simply cut out with a scissor and already unraveling.
Good quality. It was a surprise for my husband's 81st birthday & he was very pleased.
Excellent design. could have used some extra around the button holes although the fit is perfect. Worried about a future problem.
See above... .. . I'm more than a bit disappointed that my prior comments on this issue (apparently) did not merit any response from anyone at The Irish Store, so again I must modify my prior rating...
I am a large man and I knew it woud be snug...but that is ok. I love the color. I do wish the knit was not so loose.
QUICK AND EFFICIENT
sweater was good could have been a tighter weave
The sizing is a little off. The sweater was tight and this is the size he wears all the time.
This was a gift for my son in law and he loves it!!
This is the second sweater I have purchased from you for hom. Both sweaters are beautiful, cozy and look very nice on him.
