The Aran cardigan is a style of a cardigan or jumper that has got its name from the Aran Islands which is situated off the west coast of Ireland. It is sometimes referred to as a fisherman's jumper. A classical fisherman's cardigan is a very bulky garment with prominent cable patterns on the chest, often cream-colored which is worn widely during the very cold winters.

The cardigans are distinguished by their use of complex textured stitch patterns, several of which are combined in the creation of a single garment. Originally the Aran cardigans were knitted using un-scoured wool that retained its natural oils called lanolin which made the garments water-resistant and meant they remained wearable even when very wet. It was primarily the wives of island fishermen who knitted the cardigans for their husbands who had to face extreme chill at the seaside while fishing during the winters.

Some stitch patterns are widely used in the preparation of the Aran cardigans and have a traditional interpretation, often of religious significance. The honeycomb is considered as a symbol of the hard-working bee. The cable, an integral part of the fisherman's daily life, is said to be a wish for safety and good luck while fishing. The diamond is a wish of success, wealth and treasure. The basket stitch represents the fisherman's basket, a hope for a plentiful catch.

Many people who do not own cashmere socks cannot distinguish or differentiate it until they try themselves. If you own regular cotton socks and live in a cold winter climate, you will for sure find that the cotton is just not warm enough. Similar to cotton sweaters, cotton socks only provide just so much warmth which is not able to protect you from extreme chill. Even thick cotton socks do not compare to the warmth that Cashmere blankets bring. Cashmere material is much warmer than anything else that you will find in the market. The only exception would be wool. However, the biggest difference between cashmere and wool is that cashmere is soft and will not let you to feel itchy, while wool materials sometimes makes you feel like you got a mosquito bite, especially in the places where the wool is in direct contact with your bare skin.

Warm cashmere socks will help you towards keeping your entire body warm and helping you avoid the extreme winter colds. Somebody said that if your feet are kept warm, your body will feel much warmer and that statement is perfectly correct. You will pay more for the cashmere socks you buy, but they will definitely be worth it. It is advisable to start with one pair if you do not want to make the investment and then increase the number from there. Women’s cashmere socks can be easily found all over in many department stores. Men's cashmere socks are harder to find, but a quick search online will help you find a huge number of options for men as well. Men’s kilts also go a big way to protect you from the terrible winters especially in Scotland and other parts of UK.
