Sweaters, Vests & Cardigans

Our range of sweaters, vests and cardigans come in a variety of styles and colours. Irish brands or developed by Le Comptoir Irlandais, we rely on safe values for your comfort. Discover our collection to buy your favorite models.

In winter, we love wearing cardigans and wool sweaters. They are a must-have when the temperature drops. They can be worn over a shirt or t-shirt or simply on their own.

The cardigans and sweaters we offer are from the most prestigious brands such as Aran Woollen Mills, or from our own collections with Out of Ireland.

The main materials used to make the sweaters and cardigans are natural, like wool and cotton. Cashmere is also used.

The wools used to make these sweaters are carefully selected and of the highest quality. For example, there are sweaters made of merino wool, which is soft, bright and warm, as well as sweaters made entirely of combed cotton, which is a material made of mechanically combed fibres. This makes it soft, supple and pure. Clothes made from this fabric are particularly pleasant to wear.

For the rest of the year, we offer lighter cotton sweaters and cardigans for a chic yet casual look.

Find thinner jumpers with boat necks, V-necks, round necks as well as zipped or buttoned cardigans, with or without hoods.

A short story about the Irish wool jumper.

Although today the twists are no longer a distinguishing feature, they remain the symbol of the Irish sweater. The different combinations of stitches on the garment carry a great deal of information for those who can decipher them. In the Irish islands, the patterns have been carefully preserved over generations. They were often used to help identify the bodies of fishermen who had washed up on the beach after a sailing accident.

A short story of the cardigan

The cardigan was mainly worn by British and French fishermen since the 17th century. Indeed, the garment is named after James Thomas Brudenell, who was the 7th Earl of Cardigan. He became a hero in 1854 after bravely leading the Battle of Balaklava (Ukraine) in the Crimean War. In order to have more freedom of movement, he decided to slit the front of his jumper with his sword. He then gave his name to the garment he wore, making it a style in its own right.
