The fisherman’s sweater originates from the Aran Islands off the coast of Ireland. This garment has taken on various forms over the years, originally intended to be knitted it was created by fishermen’s wives and girlfriends to keep men warm while they were at sea or on shore. To overcome the heaviness that the wet sweater could take on when worn, women used raw wool that still had the lanolin coating to create a waterproof and windproof wool sweater. The English rib stitch is a pattern reversible and has more depth and softness than a standard rib, this is what makes it unique.This sweater with a heritage flavor has been revisited by us in wool/cashmere, a yarn that makes the garment light and at the same time very warm and durable.
