Quote from the Chicago Tribune
‘Quills Woollen Market is to an Aran Wool Sweater what Disneyland is to an amusement park. No other store matched Aran Sweater Selection, no one matched aran knitwear quality and very few matched price’
Each Aran Sweater is a unique work of Art, intricately knit using up to 60,000 individual stitches and can take up to 100 hours to knit.
All Aran Sweaters here at Quills are of 100% Natural Wool fibre making the irish aran sweater highly breathable, water repellent and has an excellent insulating capacity due to its natural oils in its wool which keeps the wearer warm on cold days and cool in the heat.
Aran Knitting can be traced back to the Book of Kells, where a picture of an Aran Island Sweater is depicted meaning Aran Island Sweaters style clothing was established before c.800A.D
