New Aran Sweater pattern

A traditional Fisherman’s Rib Sweater with raglan sleeves in Wensleydale Sheep Shop Aran Wool.

On the left of the picture is a vintage Fisherman’s rib knit sweater in Herdwick wool – knit by my Mum for my Dad – pulled out and re-knit when the elbows went thin. On the right the jumper recreated in Wensleydale worsted spun Aran, a bit softer than Herdwick but should be as long lasting.

The pattern, called Michael, is now available to buy and download online. You can also buy in Store and at the Wool Shows we are attending over the next few weeks.

Finally, a reminder you can browse and shop online at anytime from anywhere: SHOP NOW
