"My search for a sweater ended back in Kilronan at a small thatched cottage shop called An Púcán" - Bob Ryan on "Elements of Style" GQ February 1991
Our traditional Aran sweaters are hand-knitted by women in their own homes. Many of these women have their own distinctive family patterns which include cable, diamond, honeycomb, tree of life and blackberry. We use only top grade 100% pure wool, this combined with the expertise of the knitters produces top quality sweaters that carry the "An Púcán " label.

Our selection of knitwear includes pullovers, cardigans, vests (gilets/waistcoats), scarves, caps, mitts, gloves, socks and a range of children's wear. Prices for sweaters vary according to size and style.
