Mullen Clan Sweater

 

Mullen, Mullane, Mullan, Mullin, Mullins, Ó Maolláin.
 
The name Mullen, and its variations, can have a number of different origins. It may be the Anglicisation of Ó Maoláin, which comes from the Gaelic word “maol”, meaning ‘bald’. The Galway clan of Mullen claims descent from Maolan, who was descended from the King of Connacht. Others may be related to the Scottish MacMillans, which was adapted to Mac Mullan, or to the English Mullins.


The hand knit Mullen sweater has a trellis centre panel, flanked by link, cable and moss-filled diamonds on either side. The trellis represents the stone walled fields of the Aran Islands, the link stitch represents the unbroken chain between the Irish who emigrate and those who remain at home, the cable symbolises a wish for good luck, and the diamonds are a wish for wealth. 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.
