Doyle Clan Sweater


Dowell, Doyelle, Doyley, McDowell, Ó Dubhghaill.

The Doyles are of Norse origins, and this fact is backed up by the fact that the name is most common in the south east of the country in counties Wicklow, Wexford and Carlow. The name comes from the Gaelic “Dubh”, meaning ‘dark’, and “Gall”, meaning ‘foreigner’, and was originally used to describe the invading vikings. The name is the twelfth most common name in Ireland - find out more about the Doyle name in Ireland.

The hand knit Doyle sweater has a basket centre stitch, flanked by cable, honeycomb rope, plait, and blackberry stitches on either side. The basket stitch is symbolic of a wish for a full catch for the fisherman, cable represents good luck, honeycomb symbolises work 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.
