The men’s cable knit sweater has been a classic staple of fashion for decades. The style is most associated with the Aran islands in Ireland, where they have been made since the 1930s. The cable knitting style is a form of knitting that is made by crossing a group of stitches over another group of stitches, creating raised effects. A Vogue article in 1958 popularised the women’s cable knit sweater for a new generation. For a modern look, shop the Quirindi women’s cable knit sweater.

How to Wear a Cable Knit Sweater

The first step to investing in a cable knit sweater is choosing quality Australian wool clothing from reputable sources.

Due to its versatility, you can wear a cable knit over your shirt for insulation in cold weather or slip it on next to the skin for cosiness in warm weather. Australian merino wool is soft, breathable and non-allergenic, meaning it will feel comfortable in most mild temperatures and it never itches!

You can pair your cable knit with a dress and sneakers, or jeans and boots for a smart-casual look for brunch dates and office days. Alternatively, dress it up paired with a shirt and dress pants for a fancier, smart look.

The Benefits of Australian Merino Wool & Australian Wool Clothing

Pure Australian merino wool is one of the best fibres in the world when shopping for Australian wool clothing. It is a natural, breathable fibre that regulates body heat, wicks away moisture and is resistant to body odours. Merino knitwear is warm to wear, water resistant, UV resistant, wrinkle proof and easy to clean, making it the ideal fibre for your busy life!

Wool is also durable and long lasting, meaning your investment in a 100% Australian certified cable knit sweater from Iris & Wool will last many years.
