Inis Meáin Men’s Knit Scarf Alpaca and Silk
Knit garments 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, the island in the middle, has a population of fewer than 200 people but it has been home to a knitting mill of the same name for several decades. The knitting mill was founded in the 1960s by the industrious Dubliner Tarlach de Blacam and became the source of the island’s textile tradition revival.
