Clarke Clan Sweater

Clark, Cléireach.

 
Clarke, or Ó Cléirigh in Gaelic, is a very popular surname in Ireland. It is found predominantly in the northern province of Ulster. Its meaning originates in the Gaelic word “Cléireach”, which means ‘clergyman’ or ‘clerk’. Up until the beginning of the twentieth century the names Clery and Clarke were considered interchangeable in some parts of the country. Today, Clarke is the 32nd most numerous name in Ireland.


The hand knit Clarke sweater has a rope centre stitch, with moss-filled double zig-zags on either side. The rope is a form of cable stitch, representing good luck, and the zig-zags symbolise the ups and downs of marriage. 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.
