The Aran Islands Knitted Coverlet.
Made in Ireland, this is the 100% wool coverlet knitted with the classic Aran symbolism for a fruitful harvest and safety on the high seas. The coverlet is knitted with the diamond stitch pattern that evokes the limestone walls that enclose the farms throughout the Aran Islands, while moss stitching inside the diamonds symbolizes the seaweed used to fertilize the fields. The tight cable stitch represents ropes used by fisherman, promising safety and an abundant catch. The coverlet is knitted from thick, downy worsted wool, a warm, durable fleece preferred by Aran Islanders to combat the cold wind that sweeps off the Atlantic. The coverlet's fine wool fibers are densely knitted to create superior insulating and moisture-wicking properties to keep you comfortably warm. Hand wash or dry clean.
