Saol is the Irish word for “life,” signifying the connection of the individual to society and culture. In other words, saol is what makes life worth living. SAOL channels these themes throughout several lines that seek to provide high-quality garments based on traditional Irish apparel, updated for modern tastes, and perfect for everyday wear.
What Makes Our Sweaters Different
Every piece is specially washed, dried and steamed before being treated with an anti-shrink technology that makes it machine washable without the risk of losing proportion. And all sections of our garments are hand linked, including the collar, sleeves and sides, making for a seamless finish.
Wear the Tradition
The knit styles of our collections date to the turn of the 20th century in the remote Aran Islands off the coast of County Galway in the west of Ireland. To this day, the beautiful patterns of honeycomb, cable and diamond stitches give these sweaters a unique three-dimensional texture that allows air to circulate throughout the garment while providing a crucial insulating layer that keeps cold winds out and warm body heat in. Give “life” to your layers with SAOL.

How to Care for Your SAOL Sweater
Though all SAOL sweaters are pre-washed to ensure durability and can be machine washed, we still recommend hand washing with a mild detergent and laying flat to dry after reshaping. This ensures the texture of the pattern will remain as vibrant as the day it arrived.
