Spring/Summer 2021 Aran Knitwear Highlights
Here at the Sweater Shop, our iconic Spring/Summer Aran knitwear collection takes its name from the trio of islands at Ireland’s most westerly point, just off the coast of County Galway. Inishmore is the biggest of the islands, followed closely by Inishmann and the smallest island, Inisheer.
Wearing our spring Aran knitwear collection takes you back to the Aran Islander women who first knitted Aran sweaters as a protective layer for their fishermen spouses. The combination you admire on our Aran knitwear collection today is definitely no accident. It allows you to be a part of history as the family patterns knitted were closely guarded and passed down through generations. In fact, some even say that those who wore Aran sweaters could be identified by the pattern of the Aran knitwear.
All of the history involved throughout the decades of these iconic looks make the entire experience of purchasing spring and summer Aran knitwear that much more enjoyable. If you’re interested in learning about the full history and meanings behind Aran knitwear, please see our ultimate guide to the Aran sweater!
For now, as the warmer months get nearer, check out our list of the perfect Aran knitwear for women, men, and children to transition your family wardrobe into spring and summer.
