Irish Fisherman Sweaters
The Aran Islands are the last stop off the western coast of Ireland until you hit Boston. Surrounded by the unrelenting sea, the people who lived on the rocky isles turned to fishing to survive. The freezing weather meant that they had to wear tightly knit, durable sweaters that, over time, became the Irish cable knit sweaters we know today! The stitches on traditional Aran Island sweaters represented the family ties of an individual; here at Biddy Murphy, we like to welcome folks into our big Irish family with these sweaters! Uniquely crafted, you won’t find a quality, 100% wool Fisherman sweater like ours anywhere else!
