Aran Knitting:

The Aran sweater takes its name from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. A traditional Aran Sweater usually is off-white in color similar to a sheep’s wool and is made from 100% wool.

The jumpers are distinguished by their use of complex textured stitch patterns, several of which are combined in the creation of a single garment. One of the most recognisable features of a tradition Aran is its cable patterns on the chest.
