Aran Knitting

Aran Island fisherman off the West coast of Ireland needed their clothes to be resilient against water, very warm, and sturdy.

From the beginning of the twentieth century the women on the islands knitted thick sweaters from unbleached wool or báinín rich in water repellent lanolin. Over time they developed the distinct patterns and cables that are still produced in Ireland today.
