The Aran jumper, also known as the fisherman style knit jumper, gained a cult following after the release of the Oscar-nominated film “The Banshees of Inisherin.” TikTok videos showed groups of Gen Z shoppers searching for second-hand knits to imitate Colin Farrell’s style in the movie, resulting in a surge in sales of traditional jumpers in various shades at knitwear shops across Ireland. Blarney Woollen Mills offer an extensive range of Aran jumpers, characterised by intricate texture stitch patterns such as the tree of life, cable, moss, and basket weaves. They are available in various styles, including crew neck jumpers, zip and button cardigans, jumpers with hoods, and stylish waistcoats. Additionally, they come in classic cream as well as stylish charcoal grey and navy colours.
