The early history of the sweater is a functional one, its primary function being to offer working men warmth and a degree of protection from the elements, without constricting them as they hauled on ropes and carried heavy loads. This traditional Aran cable front sweater in a classic design reflects this heritage.
The Stanbury traditional Aran cable front jumper is made from a lambswool rich blend fabric for extra strength and softness, and is available in four colours; Navy Nep, Winter Stone Nep, Grape Nep and Forest Green Nep.
