The hand knit Hickey sweater has a central panel of interlocking cable with link and cable stitches on either side. The cable stitch represents good luck and the link stitches represent the unbroken chain, which exists between the Irish who emigrate and those who remain at home. This beautiful Aran sweater has been hand knitted in the traditional báinín (pronounced ‘baw neen’) colour, the natural white of the wool. It comes to you complete with a clan history and crest. It is made of 100% pure new wool, is water repellent and breathable. It has been hand crafted in the traditional Irish style, and, with care, will last a lifetime.
