Occupying a space between double Knit and Chunky yarns, you can learn a lot about advanced knitting techniques with King Cole’s fantastic range of Aran wool. You may not know it but Aran wool is traditionally used to create raised cable stitched, twisted and diamond patterned designs associated with classic Fisherman’s jumpers that are historically native to the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. These jumpers were unique to each clan much like kilts were to Scottish families with the natural oils in Aran wool helping to keep them dry. In addition to the classic natural fibre variety, modern Aran wool also include premium acrylic and fibre blends which deliver the same gauge knit and feel with the additional benefits of being easier to wash and maintain.
