Cable knit sweaters (Alan sweaters) come from the islands on the west coast of Ireland. Alan sweaters in the Alan Islands are made of undegreased wool and complex undulating lines with good heat preservation and water resistance.

It is thicker than a sweater and has more texture than an ordinary sweater.

In addition to machine-made cable sweaters, hand-made of big cable sweaters are also very distinctive.

Considering that hand-made will be more expensive, compared with the chunky and cosy style, we do not recommend long body length. In addition, the choice of yarn is generally wool blended to lower the sweaters’ cost

But with the update and iteration of the machine, at present, this big cable pattern can also be completed by the machines. Choose a 2 guage to complete.
