The traditional and authentic Aran Sweater was and still is, a practical choice for the hardworking fisherman and farmers of these three remote Islands.  Being made from the wool of locally bred sheep they contain natural oils that help make them waterproof and keep the men warm and dry in the harshest of conditions. Inis Mor is the biggest of the three Islands and the stunning location of some breath-taking scenery.  Irish hospitality is renowned throughout the world as well as the authentic Irish Sweaters that are still made there.
