This is the pullover sweater expertly hand-machine knit on Inis MeŠin in Ireland's Aran Islands using a traditional basket weave pattern. The sweater is woven from a rare blend of Italian cashmere and merino wool that are so perfectly color matched they are left undyed so as not to diminish the fiber's extraordinary natural softness. The interlocking open weave used in this garment is believed to represent the ancient stone walls that criss-cross the island, while its natural color evokes images of the island's imposing limestone cliffs. Blessed with rugged natural beauty, the island's remoteness has enabled a centuries-old knitting tradition to survive to this day. The basket weave pattern was often used on garments worn by the island's inhabitants for special occasions. The sweater has ribbed wrists, collar, and waistband. Dry clean only. Beige. Sizes S, M, L, XL, XXL, and XXXL. (1 lb.)
