Irish Wool Sweater! 1970s Gaeltarra Cardigan is So Cozy!


1970s Gaeltarra Irish wool sweater in cream


There’s nothing quite like an Irish wool sweater! And this 1970s Gaeltarra cardigan is absolutely stellar and in pristine condition!

The leather-covered buttons and cowl collar give it the perfect vintage look without dating it too much!

The cream color is neutral enough to complement any outfit for a touch of both warmth and style.

I would personally wear this sweater with a cute top and a fabulous Pendleton skirt like this tartan plaid one. Add these gorgeous Franco Sarto boots! But this cute sweater would look just as good thrown over a T-shirt and jeans.

This fabulous Irish wool sweater would fit a modern M-L, depending on the fit you prefer, but the measurements, taken flat, are:

B: 20″ pit-to-pit
W: 17″
L: 25″

Did you know the Irish fisherman sweater has its roots on the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland? These gorgeous sweaters were born from utility as Irish fishermen battled harsh conditions, and the wool sweaters their wives knitted for them protected them as they worked out on the ocean.

This cool history of the Aran sweater from The Sweater Shop out of Dublin offers great insight into the working-class history of the sweater and how it became a staple of the economy.
