Máirtín Beag Galánta – Burgundy Fleck
30% Cashmere | 70% Merino Wool
For generations, the wives of Island fishermen knitted Aran workwear for their husbands. A hundred years ago, Máire Cáit, a skilled and imaginative knitter, decided her husband’s workwear should look as special as his Sunday Best. Thanks to his wife’s fine craftwork and distinctive patterns, Máirtín Beag became known as a particularly well dressed man. Inspired by her imagination and skill, our now signature Máirtín Beag Galánta is an elegant and understated aran sweater with a gorgeous soft handle. Galánta is used to describe an understated yet confident sense of style, similar to the Italian sprezzatura. Featuring intricate cables and a high neck finished with three horn buttons, the button loops are in contrasting crimson for this season, creating stylish yet simple closures. Now crafted with super-premium Cashmere and Merino yarn from Italian heritage producer, Filati Biagioli Modesto, made to the highest European environmental standards using only organic dyes.
Available in Charcoal Fleck, a versatile dark grey elevated with orange and snowy white highlights, and Burgundy Fleck, a warm maroon with a subtle crimson, orange and blue fleck. Designed, made and hand-finished in our Aran Islands workshop.

Apparel CareThis garment is made using some of nature's most luxurious natural fibres, Cashmere and Extra Fine Merino Wool. This yarn has a characteristic crimp making it susceptible to pilling over time. To protect against pilling do not wear underneath other woolen layers or velcros and do not over-wash. Hand wash in water no more than 30 degrees using a mild detergent. Lay on a flat surface to dry.
