Handknit aran sweater for men or women
This sweater is made from 100% pure Irish wool - the colour is cream, known in Ireland as bainin (pronounced baw-neen), and is a traditional and much-loved garment. When I lived in Ireland I made more of these sweaters than I can remember! Not only is the wool super-warm, but the cabling provides layering which enhances the thermal quality of the knitted fabric. A tremendous number of hours goes into the making of these garments, so obviously a love of the craft is required as well as patience and attention to detail.
One of the great things about aran sweaters is that they suit both men and women, and are timeless.
Actual measurements are: chest 40", length from back of neck to hem 22", length from neck across shoulder and down arm 26". I find measuring on the outside of the arm gives the buyer a better idea than measuring the inside seam, because the beginning of the inside seam could be at the armpit, or a few inches lower, depending on the pattern and the size of the person.
Please wash this carefully by hand and lay flat to dry - it is worthwhile getting a sweater dryer. If you take care of it, this sweater will last a lifetime.

To keep postage costs down for the buyer, I ship by the most economical method - unless the buyer is in a rush, then I will find the expedient way.
I ship from Canada, and small packages must fit through a slot at the post office in order to qualify for reasonable postage rates. For example, a pair of earrings in a small jewellery box will cost four times the postage as the same pair wrapped securely in bubble wrap and tissue paper - even if both packages weigh the same. For this reason, I will not use jewellery boxes when shipping.
Unless something is damaged in shipping, I will not do returns nor exchanges.
