"Specialists in Aran Hand-knits"

This centrally located shop has a vast range of Irish hand-knits as well as machine-knit sweaters, cardigans and scarves. However, it specialises in the hand-knit Aran range of knitwear. This style of hand knitting goes back hundreds of years, and it is said that Daniel was depicted in the Book of Kells wearing an Aran sweater and a matching pair of socks. Traditionally, women on the Aran Islands spun and hand-knitted the pure wool. Different symbolic stitches were handed down over the generations; and diamond, cable and honeycomb stitches are still used today.
