    There’s a knitwear factory on the island where apparently lots of Americans show up to do their Christmas shopping for typical Aran knitwear. Many of the larger items in there like sweaters or jackets were rather pricey, but the fact they are originals and not mass-produced probably justifies this to some extent. But there are also some smaller items to be purchased like hats and scarfs, and even ties!

    Aran sweaters

    The many tourist/ souvenir shops on the island will always stock the famos Aran sweaters...
    These hand-knit sweaters are said to have evolved from unique patterns used by each family and with oiled wool to repelled the rain.
