Barry Clan Sweater


Barri, Barrymore, De Barra, Dubarry.

The Barry family is of Welsh origin, and came to Ireland in the 12th century. Barrys are most common in Cork, where the Irish version of the name, de Barra, can be spotted on many shop and pub fronts. The Barrys were a wealthy family in Cork, however they lost much of their wealth through gambling. There is also a connection between the Barry family and county Wicklow. One of the most famous Irish patriots belongs to the family, Kevin Barry.

The hand knit Barry sweater has a cable centre panel, flanked by honeycomb, lobster claw and blackberry stitches on either side. The cable is symbolic of good luck, honeycomb represents work, lobster claw is a wish for prosperity and blackberry is symbolic of the Holy Trinity. This beautiful Aran sweater has been hand knitted in the traditional báinín (pronounced ‘baw neen’) colour, the natural white of the wool. It comes to you complete with a clan history and crest. It is made of 100% pure new wool, is water repellent and breathable. It has been hand crafted in the traditional Irish style, and, with care, will last a lifetime.




Authentic Aran 100% Wool Made in Ireland

Size Guide

Please remember, wool is a natural fibre and has a strong element of flexibility. If your garment feels slightly small at first, give it a gentle stretch which will loosen the fibres in a way that will not damage the garment or cause it to lose its shape.

Where a specific size is available for a garment: To calculate the size sweater you require simply measure across the chest of your favourite sweater in inches and double that value.
