Fisherman Out of Ireland - Knitwear Collection

Our Story

From Ireland

Our StoryFisherman Out of Ireland was founded by the renowned Blarney Woollen Mills family business in 1991. For 30 years now we have been at the forefront of design led Irish knitwear.

We are Fisherman Out of Ireland; a multi award-winning contemporary knitwear brand that is situated between the majestic Sliabh Liag cliffs and Ireland’s largest fishing port – Killybegs. It is here that you’ll find Kilcar, a small village in County Donegal that we have called home since 1991.

The Inspirational Donegal Landscape

Our collection of sweaters, hats and scarves are inspired by the beautiful, rugged and wild Irish coastline that is quite literally on our doorstep. Our garments are made using sustainable and luxurious yarns by our team of dedicated artisans, many of whom have been with us since the inception of the brand.

Our Core Mission

It is this awe inspiring environment, along with the local fishing communities, which constantly feeds our inspiration when creating new yarns, colours and styles for each new Collection. We might be situated on the edge of Europe in the middle of ‘nowhere’ but our 100% natural fibre, quality, contemporary jumpers are shipped far and wide to the 4 corners of the world.

Over the years the brand has grown and evolved to where we now export over 70 percent of everything we make to the four corners of the globe. In that time a lot has changed but our core mission has reminded the same; to create the highest quality garment that you’ll delight in putting on and struggle to take off.

Our Heritage

Enough has been said and written about the origins of the Irish Aran sweater and what the various stitches were said to represent. What separates our knitwear from the pack is that when you purchase one of our pieces you’ll find all the authenticity of an Irish inspired sweater, made in Ireland, with a modern fit and yarns that you can wear next to your skin.
