Why This Sweater
I'll Tell You Why.
First, there’s the weather. Spring lasts a day, February a year.
Then there’s the history, equally persistent. The Spanish Armada was a month ago; the Uprising of 1916 was yesterday.
Little wonder the Irish need their comforts. Breeding resilient Connemara ponies. Baking more soda bread than anyone can eat. Sitting in dark, turf-heated pubs, honing their conversation, wearing wonderful sweaters like this.
Deeply textured. Robust. But soft and consoling, too.
Nobody does it better than the Irish. Nobody makes you feel better about going out to meet the world.
Why This Sweater (No. 5632). This is the original. Considered even by the Irish as Ireland’s finest. Beautifully handmade from over 2 pounds of soft, luxurious worsted wool. Thick cable pattern front and back. Ribbed collar, cuffs, and hem. Aged brass zipper.
A very comforting gift for someone you care a lot about. Even if it’s yourself. Made in Ireland.
