This beautifully made Aran sweater is ideal for cold weather! This Irish sweater is crafted from 100% merino wool. Merino wool is a fine wool that is softer, lighter, and more breathable than other types of wool, which can be rough and scratchy. Merino is comfortable to wear right next to your skin, and is as warm and durable as a traditional wool sweater! Merino wool is also water-repellent, sweat-repellent, and resistant to annoying pilling. Well-made and intricate, this detailed and tightly knit sweater is durable and sure to be a favorite for years to come.
The various types of stitching featured on the sweater are typical Aran design; originating on the Aran Islands, Aran designs were initially made by the hard-working and crafty Irish Islander women. The tight sleeves and heavier neckline gives this sweater the perfect fit, keeping your wrists warm and body heat contained. The sweater is suitable for people of any gender. Great for wearing outside to play with the kids in the snow or to keep you warm snuggled up inside with a cup of hot chocolate, this versatile and cozy sweater is perfect for any chilly day. Sweater comes in sizes medium to XXL.

Beautiful and warm
While I was in a British college exchange program I visited Dublin for a weekend and noticed people wearing the beautiful sweaters (or "jumpers" as my English classmates called them). So for several decades since, I had wanted to own a genuine Irish Fisherman sweater, and now I finally have one. I am not disappointed. It's beautiful, comfortable, and warm. Thank you, Biddy Murphy!
Bought for my daughter; Looks great!
It was a bit too big for a medium sized womxn, too long. But definitely wearable with leggings. I'd hoped for something a bit smaller to wear with jeans.
Old World Quality at a Bargain Price!
This is a high quality, well-crafted sweater. If you were to shop retail outlets for a sweater this well-made, you would spend twice as much or more. I am looking forward to having this sweater in my rotation for years to come!
My husband was really pleased…he is a life long wearer of Irish knit sweaters. However this one seems a bit less rugged than usual and it is too slim. He is usually a men’s Medium and although I ordered a large we are asked Biddy Murphy for an XL. The sweater is long enough in arms and body, but feels too slimly cut.
