In this cosy workshop you will begin to craft a traditional Aran Knit scarf using Irish wool yarn sourced and spun in Co. Donegal. Suitable for all skill levels, this experience is a fantastic introduction to both cable knitting techniques and traditional Irish design.

Aran cable knitting originated off the west coast of Ireland within the boundaries of its namesake home, the Aran Islands – a neat group of Gaeltacht isles nestled in the cold, restless waters of the Atlantic; their history long, rich and holding tight to an Irish-speaking status to this day. It is here that the ‘Aran Jumper’ hails from, this notable knitwear incorporating the very techniques this course will pass on to you.

Aran hand-knitting has unfortunately fared less well in this modern world, seeing a decline that demands attention. In the spirit of preserving and promoting a niche piece of Irish heritage, this experience aims to share this longstanding hand-knitting technique; sourcing Irish wool produced in co. Donegal to serve as our core material, encouraging not only the cultural aspect of Aran knitting, but happily supporting the economy surrounding it.
