Clan Sweater Patterns ♥

Over the years, in line with ancient Irish folklore, many Clans adopted the Aran Sweater as the ultimate Clan symbol. Historically these patterns were safeguarded within families and passed down from generation to generation.

Today there are over 130 different patterns available with more still to be developed, inspired by the different parts of Ireland and the Irish names which originated from within. The pattern’s foundations are deep-rooted in ancient Irish legend, culture and traditions.

Each clan pattern is a work of art unique to those bearing your name. There is evidence that over this last century many clans adopted their own particular pattern; a unique combination of stitches that provided deep symbolic meaning to each family and this was then passed down from generation to generation.

Organic and natural, made with plant wax and essential oils, the candles and wax melts are pure enough to rub on the skin and powerful enough to ignite the senses. The range of scents, the fact they burn clear without wastage and the simple yet sophisticated packaging make them a perfect gift or a therapeutic self-indulgence.

Our favourites are the sensual aroma of orange, clove, and cinnamon for daytime and relaxing lavender for evening.
