We are pleased to present our 2nd collection of knitwear, made in collaboration with our friends – the heritage Irish brand Inis Meain.
We have 3 brand new styles for the season with 3 colours per style, all are in a 70 % merino / 30% cashmere blend.
The style above is the ‘Dubh Cable Knit’ which is available in this ‘Mustard’ and ‘Lead’ and ‘Ochre’ also.
As ever, the quality of these pieces is outstanding as is the feeling of authenticity you get from them as they come to us directly from the rugged landscape of the Aran Isles.
The Inis Meain Knitting Company was born in 1976 out of a desire to reflect the practical dress of the Aran islanders and their daily lives in modern, luxurious knitwear. Each piece is hand finished in house and we have the pleasure of stocking these very special and limited garments in store and online.
The knitwear itself would originally be hand knitted by the wives of fishermen, for example, for the men to keep warm while out on their boats. The patterns on these pieces has related meaning such as the (boat) rope design which forms part of the Cable Knit design. Inis Meain’s designs are a continuation of this.
The style below is our ‘Artair’ and is available in these 3 colours.
It features 3 different knit patterns and a toggle closure for extra closeness as the days grow shorter. It is the stand out piece of our small collection, having many features and being so distinctive. It’s a real classic.
The last style is the ‘Manachan Donegal Knit’ neck knit which is the finest weight of the 3. It’s available in 3 colours. Below is ‘Oat’, there is also ‘Wheatgrass’ and ‘Midnight’.
Doherty, Evans & Stott are proud to still be the only stockist of Inis Meain garments in the north of England.
