Aran Sweaters Kill the Chill!

Guest Author - Mary Ellen Sweeney

These are the genuine article. These rare garments are hand-knitted the old-fashioned way, for outstanding quality with which factory-made clothing just can't compare. Dedicated home-outworkers, every one of whom is trusted to produce perfect work are commissed to knit these remarkable sweaters. These wonderful ladies (mostly) devote days or weeks of loving attention towards creating each unique garment - an average 60 hours per Aran sweater! They use knitting needles and traditional patterns, the very best quality wool, and endless care. The result is a piece whose quality and authenticity stand out even from afar, and that feels so much warmer and more durable than anything else you'll wear. It's truly hard to do this hand-made knitwear justice with mere words or images. But trust us: you'll find few comparable products even in the very most exclusive stores. Your best chance is if your granny made it for you!
