Irish Dog designs is Irelands leading maker of Handknit Aran Irish Dog sweaters. Using only the finest quality yarn our 100% wool sweaters are statement pieces for you and your canine companions to wear, cherish and celebrate your Irish roots.
The Handknit sweaters are made using the age old craft of knitting and how different stitches reflect different themes e.g. Honeycomb Stitch: This stitch is a reminder of the hardworking bee and promises reward for honest labour.
Irish Moss Stitch: Often knitted as a diamond ‘filler’, the moss stitch suggests a good harvest. It depicts Carrageen moss, a type of seaweed found on the Irish coast, which is used as a food and as a fertiliser on barren fields.
As each sweater is Handknit by an individual (no machine is used at any stage) it takes time and attention in great detail to complete each sweater.
