Meet the classic Aran sweater’s sophisticated city cousin. Its just as evocative of Irish charm and tradition, but the long, open, shawl-collar style with fold-back cuffs is far more elegant.
The marled yarn is made in County Donegal but the sweater itself is crafted by a third-generation studio in the heart of Dublin. Made of a blend of lambswool and cotton for warmth without bulk, with a touch of cashmere and silk for irresistible texture and drape.
Quick shipping, well packaged but the sweater itself was a disappointment. I didn’t like the yarn itself in that the twist and twill made it look cheap to me. Too high priced for what it was.
This sweater is stunning. I am sensitive to wool but this yarn combination is soft and not itchy. The shawl collar dresses it up and will work well with scarves. I like the cable knit detail at the wrists, side seams, shawl collar and where the arms attach to the body of the sweater. They pull it all together and adds style. The teal color is rich and beautiful and will coordinate with so many colors. I am 5’3” and 125 lbs and the medium fits perfectly. This was my first order at Petalura and service was fantastic. I received the package in 3 days. Thanks!
