What is Aran Weight Yarn?

Aran weight yarn is slightly thicker than worsted weight but not as heavy as bulky yarn. It is often associated with traditional Aran sweaters, which are named after the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. These sweaters are known for their intricate cable and textured patterns, which show up well using this type of yarn.

Aran Patterns - Traditional and Modern

One defining feature of Aran knitting is the intricate cable patterns. These patterns not only add visual interest but also symbolize different aspects of Irish culture and heritage. By using our Aran knitting wool, you can bring these timeless patterns to life and create garments that tell a story. Perhaps you prefer a more modern spin on this classic-weight yarn?

Explore our Aran pattern collection and be inspired by the wide range available. Also, feel free to choose different shades from those stated in the patterns - from traditional earthy tones to vibrant hues, there's something to suit every taste and project.
