Inis Meain for H. Stockton
Blackberry Marl Heavy Linen Crewneck Sweater
Inis Meáin Knitting Company was founded in 1976 on the Aran island of the same name by Tarlach de Blácam and Áine Ní Chonghaile. The couple was inspired by the unique spirit, environment and heritage of the place and were determined to make it their home. Becoming involved in a series of development projects aimed at creating a sustainable community, their mission led to equipping a small factory with six knitting machines and teaching the younger residents the time-honored craft of Irish knitwear. Inis Meáin Knitting Company offered regular work in a factory setting, attracting young people who would otherwise have left the island forever.
Today, Inis Meáin Knitting Company continues to delve into the rich knitting heritage of the island for inspiration, reinterpreting traditional stitches and styles in the finest yarns to create beautiful and sophisticated garments for contemporary living. We are proud to launch our partnership with this incredible, community-oriented knitwear maker.
This crewneck sweater is like none we've ever seen. Knitted in heavy linen, the deep, blackberry marl is filled with blues, greens, reds and nearly anything in-between. The resulting look is understated, while remaining interesting. Worn over a button-down shirt and chino, dress trouser or on it's own underneath an soft coat, it adds just the right touch of unique. The heavy Irish linen breathes beautifully for warm Spring days, while it's heft is perfect for cool nights or an extra layer during Winter. We think you'll love how the linen breaks in, surely to become one of your favorite pieces of knitwear.
