Meet the Makers: Spotlight on IrelandsEye Knitwear

Meet the Makers: Spotlight on IrelandsEye Knitwear

Here at The Sweater Shop, we pride ourselves in stocking the best quality Aran knitwear made here in Ireland by local Irish suppliers.

As part of our 'Meet the Makers' series, each month, we shine a light on one of our incredibly talented suppliers and give some further information into where and how these beautiful sweaters are made.

We have proudly been stocking some these amazing Irish knitwear brands for over 35 years and share their love for sustainability, Irish heritage and premium quality Irish Aran Knitwear.

First up is a fellow Irish family-run business, IrelandsEye Knitwear.

Introducing IrelandsEye Knitwear

IrelandsEye Knitwear started with one man in his garage in Dublin knitting sweaters to keep his family warm in the Winter. His name was Jim O’Sullivan and his dream was to create a business that his family could work in for generation to come. 

When a knitwear machine became available, he started teaching them how to use it and IrelandsEye Knitwear was born.

IrelandsEye started with six family members. They now employ over 50 people working in their 30,000Sq. Ft Factory in Dublin, producing true pieces Irish knitwear heritage in the process.

Popular IrelandsEye Knitwear Items

We knew that our customers wanted beautiful knitwear made from natural yarns that is made in Ireland so we were confident they were going to love IrelandsEye as much as we do.

Some of our favorite sweaters from IrelandsEye include the traditional Unisex Aran Sweater, available in many colors, made of 100% Merino wool right here in Dublin.

 The brand also produces a stunning range of luxurious wool and cashmere sweaters that our customers adore as they are so soft to wear yet still fashionable and sustainable - often lasting many years if maintained correctly.


Our Mens Wool and Cashmere Collection from IrelandsEye has been hugely popular as of late as their designs are youthful, stylish and most of all extremely comfortable to wear (some say it’s like a warm hug in a sweater!)
