Aran Woollen Mills (formerly known as Carraig Donn), located in County Mayo, West Ireland, draws inspiration from its truly unique environment to create the most amazing traditional and contemporary Irish knitwear in their Westport garment manufacturing factory. In 1965, the story started when Maura and Padraig Hughes created their factory, willing to preserve the irish knitting expertise and secure local employments. Aran Wollen Mills has been crafting Aran sweaters, traditionally worn by Irish fishermen. These sweaters originate from the Aran Islands, renowned for their beauty and natural environment, as well as for its rich cultural heritage.

Aran SweaterDrawing heavily from Celtic tradition, Aran Woollen Mills developed a passion for design and Irish craft, blending Irish heritage with contemporary designs.

Using only the best natural yarns, Aran Woollen Mills knits Irish jumpers with traditional stitches, each one carrying its own unique meaning, a historic legacy from the Irish clans. The stitches reflected the lives of the islanders and their families, and were passed on one generation to the next.

The Cable Stitch is a depiction of the fisherman's ropes, and represents a wish for a fruitful day at sea. The Diamond Stitch reflects the small fields of the islands. These diamonds are sometimes filled with Irish moss stitch, depicting the seaweed that was used to fertilise the barren fields and produce a good harvest. Hence the diamond stitch is a wish for success and wealth. The Zig Zag Stitch, a half diamond, is often used in the Aran Sweaters, and popularly represents the twisting cliff paths on the islands. The Tree of Life is one of the original stitches, and is unique to the earliest examples of the Aran knitwear.

Aran SweaterKnitwear was long to make, costly and made to last. It was used as working clothes and as a protection by fishermen against the relentless Atlantic Ocean and hard weather conditions.
