Discover the perfect way to keep warm this winter with Aran Woollen Mill’s First Collection of Luxuriously Soft Knitwear. The collection of premium clothing and accessories for men and women brings the natural beauty, warmth, and unique style of Aran knitwear directly to those who value craftsmanship, authenticity, and sustainability. Traditional yet contemporary, the collection includes sweaters, cardigans, scarves, hats and more, with each item individually designed and knitted by skilled craftspeople in Westport and Belmullet. With a palette that draws inspiration from the stunning Atlantic coastline and majestic landscape surrounding the brand’s base in Co Mayo, all pieces are created using super-soft wool, and featuring much-loved Aran stitch patterns.
For generations, Irish garment manufactures harnessed the power of wool, the natural fibre is durable, insulating yet breathable and anti-microbial, making it perfect for clothing. Using the highest quality wool and by creating their own blends of super-soft yarn, each of Aran’s knitwear pieces are luxuriously soft to the touch, elegantly draping across the body while maintaining the traditional properties of natural wool.
Aran Woollen Mills manufactures high quality, premium, knitwear made from responsibly sourced natural fibres. These natural fibres provide many benefits: They are anti-microbial, odour repellent, and water and dirt resistant – the yarn wicks away moisture from the body. The yarn has superior insulating properties, making clothing warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Animal welfare is paramount to the business – it underpins everything they stand for. Aran Woollen Mills buy their wool from yarn suppliers who work closely with small, family sheep farmers. Every single animal is very important to the farmers’ livelihood meaning the sheep are particularly well cared for. These farms tend to be passed down the generations. The wool is cleaned, combed, dyed, and spun in the country of origin, usually as part of a community programme, the yarn suppliers being officially recognised, before it arrives on the cone here in Ireland, ready to be inspected before it is knitted.
