The hand knit McDermott sweater has a trellis centre panel, flanked by braid, and blackberry stitches on either side. The trellis represents the stone walled fields of the Aran Islands, and the blackberry stitch represents the Holy Trinity. 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.
