Men’s sizes M(38–42), L(42–44), XL(46–48), XXL(48–50). Hand wash. Made in the village of Monasterevin, County Kildare, Ireland.

the aran cardigan was exactly as pictured. the sizing was a bit small, however, the shipping with acorn was great and they shipped the larger size asap. the wool was a lot lighter than i anticipated, since i was planning on wearing it as a cover sweater, and not under a jacket. i would have liked it if it were heavier.

I love cardigan sweaters. The look and warmth are what makes a cardigan so nice. I would have liked the wool to be a little heavier on this sweater. It is too thick to be worn under a jacket, but not thick enough for a cold day.

Very Pleased With My Irish Sweater!

I was disappointed with this sweater. The weave was too loose. I can't see how it would keep me very warm. The color threads were starting to unravel and the size (XL) ran a bit small around the waist. I returned it for a refund. We will see how that goes.

The sweater is fine, but it seems to run small. I ordered a men's XL for a friend and it was too small. It fit me (I'm a woman & wear size 14/16), so I kept it for myself. I ordered the XXL for him and it was OK, but wasn't a lot bigger either. I do like my sweater very much.

I purchased this as a gift for my elderly father, and he loves it. The wool is soft and warm, not at all itchy as wool often is. He pulls the warm shawl collar up like a scarf around his neck to ward off the chill. He's not a very big man, so I initially ordered the medium, but it was far too small, so had to exchange it for the large, so the sizing is a little bit on the small side. The buttonholes are of a very simple construction and will need reinforcing. Other than the sizing and the buttonholes, this is a perfect sweater.

The sweater is beautiful and very well made! My husband has had several people stop him in the mall/stores and say how beautiful it is. I'm glad I got it for him. I got a 2X but it isn't quite big enough. He's keeping it, though. Can you get some larger sizes in the future? Also, please don't show the item in a September/October magazine when in reality it is "out of stock" and the new shipment won't be available until the middle of December!!!

The sweater is quite lovely. However, the sweater is sized small for the U.S. sizes offered. As a result I have had to send the sweater back and order 2 sizes larger. A notation should be made in your offering that sizes are for more petite Irish men.
