New , Luxurious Mairtin Beag button neck sweater.
Supersoft luxury feel.
For generations, the wives of Island fishermen knitted Aran workwear for their husbands. A hundred years ago, Máire Cáit, a skilled and imaginative knitter, decided her husband’s workwear should look as special as his Sunday Best. Thanks to his wife’s fine craftwork and distinctive patterns, Máirtín Beag became known as a particularly well dressed man.
Inspired by her imagination and skill, our Limited Edition Máirtín Beag Galánta is an elegant and understated charcoal cashmere blend with a gorgeous soft handle. It features intricate cables with a ribbed cuff and welt, and the high neck finished with three monotone horn buttons with loops creates a stylish yet simple closure.
Made and hand-finished in Aran Islands studio.

This garment is made using some of nature's most luxurious natural fibres, Cashmere and Extra Fine Merino Wool. This yarn has a characteristic crimp making it susceptible to pilling over time. To protect against pilling do not wear underneath other woolen layers or velcros and do not over-wash. Hand wash in water no more than 30 degrees using a mild detergent. Lay on a flat surface to dry.
