Sherkin Island Knitwear

Sherkin Island Knitwear

In 2005, Sherkin Island Knitwear launched a new range of lightweight ladies knitwear and accessories, using hand-dyed cotton and chenille yarns with decorative clay buttons.

Sherkin Island Knitwear

Sherkin Island Knitwear was established as a co-operative of 8 women in 1982 and is now a member of the Crafts Council of Ireland. The group produces hand loomed knitwear in pure Donegal Tweed wool. The designs are both original and classic and come in a variety of rich colours featuring hand fired matching buttons. The emblem we use is derived from the ancient Gaelic name for Sherkin - Inish Arcáin, meaning Island of Seapigs or porpoises.
