"Oinbones" Fisherman Sweater
Because of its ability to provide warmth even when wet, wool has been worn by fishermen for centuries. It also provides excellent insulation due to the high volume of air it contains in the thick 3 gauge cable knit stitching.
Based off of classic designs from the Aran Islands, this sweater incorporates traditional stitch patterns, each one with a specific significance and meaning...
Starting from the center and working outwards:
The "Diamond" stitch is a symbol of success and good health. It represents the small fields of the islands and is filled with Irish moss stitch to reflect the seaweed that was used to fertilize the barren fields and produce a good harvest.
The "Cable" stitch represents the fisherman's ropes and the hope for a fruitful day at sea.
The "Tree of Life" stitch is one of the earliest original Aran designs, it signifies the importance of the clan and is an expression of a desire for clan unity with long-lived parents and strong children.

I've worn this once for an entire day after receiving it, and everything about it is awesome, from the fit to its looks.
Got it today and I love the look and fit. Unfortunately the right cuff was coming apart and I had to repair it immediately. Would have hoped for better finishing but I'm handy with a needle and thread or in this case, kite string. Want sabi.
I was on the fence about this sweater for some time and finally pulled the trigger on it and it's worth every penny. Super soft wool very nice stitching and overall look and color is outstanding. I originally got a medium and quickly realized I may have been too ambitious with the sizing. Emailed them about an exchange for a Large and got a reply within minutes. I'll be wearing this sweater for a long long time.
I am so pleased with this sweater. My son is going to love this sweater!
Really a great buy!
