The Aran Islands.
To hold your own in the Aran islands, you’ll require strong moxie and some sumptuous thermal layers. After all, there were once glaciers here. Locals used to wear unscoured, lanolin-rich garments that were purely utilitarian; local fishermen swore by the natural waterproofing (they were also unconscionably scratchy).
This hat and scarf are crafted of 100% merino wool. Stitched in the same classic corded pattern, they are just as warm as the old, lanolin-rich variants but feel exceedingly better on your skin.
Aran Hat (No. 6404). Pure merino wool. Plush. Warm. Good enough to brace the North Atlantic winds and will successfully trap that 7–10% of heat you’d otherwise lose through your head (no, it’s not 40%—that’s a fallacy).
