Irish Times: New season knits from Irish designers

Like it or not, Irish style is still defined by its knitwear. The needles might not clack quite so vigorously around the fireside anymore, but native designers are proving that heritage skills can be interpreted in fresh and exciting ways with high-grade yarns and state of the art computer expertise.

This season, Irish winter-knits are going to appear in a broad range from reworked fishermen’s sweaters by Inis Meáin (selling in Paris, New York and London), to the zany graphics of Electronic Sheep, and the Eileen Fisher-style languid cashmere hoodies of Lucy Nagle.

At the luxury end, the yarn defines the softness. Cashmere and superfine merinos are used by Edmund McNulty for his sophisticated menswear, while the less expensive long-line knits in mohair mixes by Carolyn Donnelly for her Dunnes Stores collection, or the more traditional cabled sweaters from the Sweater Shop, won’t break the bank
