A traditional dark-gray Aran knitted cap of pure merino sheep wool. It was knitted at a small Irish manufacture that has been in operation since 1760. A beautiful, cozy, warm, comfortable and practical.
The cap has a textured braids pattern. These patterns are called “Aran” after the Aran Islands in the West of Ireland, where the population is predominantly in fishing. This is why the principal element of the pattern is a braid. It symbolized fishing tackle and serves as a good luck wish.
An important quality of those hats is that they were made by special stretch knitting. This means they fit any head size. In a short while, the cap adapts itself to any head, and it will be an absolute comfort to wear it.
It suits both men and women, as well as boys and girls.
