Inis Meáin Linen Shirt
A Light Linen Shirt with "Donegal Flecks".
Inis Meáin knits Flemish linen for this light sweater which can be worn like a long-sleeved t-shirt. For the linen fabric, the mill uses the famous "Donegal flecks" technique involving the sprinkling of colour with flecks of a thicker material that occur occasioanally but are nonetheless firmly embedded in the yarn. The result is a rare linen yarn that is not easy to work with. It is plain knit for this form knit shirt, with a little rolled edge at the neck and hems.
An Island Tradition. Knitted Goods from Inis Meáin.
The three Aran Islands on the west coast of Ireland in the Bay of Galway are mainly known around the world for the extraordinary knitting skill of their inhabitants. Inis Meáin, pronounced Inisch Maan, is the island in the middle. In addition to the population of less than 200, it has been home to a knitting mill of the same name for several decades. The mill was founded in the 1960s by the industrious Dubliner Tarlach de Blacam and became the source of the island’s textile tradition revival.
