The sweater is knitted using the Aran stitching technique, just like the classic sweaters worn by Irish fishermen. This technique adds a dual benefit of both breathability and effective heat insulation, promising warmth without causing overheating. Beyond functionality, these stitches are believed to bring blessings of good luck and to tell stories about the island's inhabitants. The cable stitch, resembling fishermen's ropes, is a heartfelt wish for safety and good fortune. The diamond stitch is a wish for prosperity and resembles the scattered farms across the Aran Islands. The honeycomb stitch represents the diligent bees, and the sweet rewards after their work. Finally, the moss stitch is thought to symbolize abundance and prosperity.
