Aran Knits

Aran knitwear is as valued today as it was in medieval times – it is said in the Book of Kells that Daniel was depicted wearing an Aran jersey with socks to match!
Originally, whilst their womenfolk spun the wool from the natural fleece, the fisherman knitted the garments using goose quills for needles. They created patterns of great beauty, simple as befitted those who lived so close to nature, but symbolic and dignified. Study the stitches in your Aran garment, they are an allegory to the way of life: they are an Irish heritage.
