Looking for a piece to wrap yourself in as winter is approaching? Our Aran Cowl Neck Irish Poncho is the perfect combination of cozy, comfortable, and stylish!
This beautifully knit piece is a modern reinterpretation of the traditional Aran sweater. In the 19th century, these sweaters were knitted by the wives and mothers of the fishermen in order to protect them from the unforgiving cold of the ocean. This classical craftsmanship is redesigned by SAOL to fit with the present day fashion. Our high-quality poncho is made of 100% merino wool, which is soft to touch and feels luxurious on the skin. Wool is perfect for the wintertime, being equally warm and breathable for ultimate comfort. The poncho can be worn both indoors, for extra coziness, or outdoors to protect you from the cold.
What makes the poncho truly special is its versatility. It can be worn in various combinations and it is perfect for layering. Besides its practicality, it also has a unique and refined design. The knit pattern is also a homage paid to tradition, as the poncho features a charming combination of cable and Aran stitches, each with its own symbolistic. The Aran stitch creates a neutral base, which draws attention to the cable knit that is, by far, the most popular stitch pattern, representing the fishermen’s ropes and nets and a sign of good luck. A stylish finish is added to the overall design with an oversized cowl neck, for extra warmth. Our garment comes in 3 superb colors: Neutral, Army Green, and Teal. Each of them can be matched to countless outfit combinations. The poncho is a one-size-fits-all that will complement all body types.
