Rathlin Knitwear is a progressive craft business based in the Gaeltacht area of south-west Donegal. The company uses a wide range of new and traditional types of raw material including a signature line in Donegal tweed wool. The wool is hand-loomed into sweaters, scarves and hats.
Their tunic style is based on the traditional fishermans sweater and features heritage stitching. The sweaters have a very distinctive finish thanks to the tweed wool. It is very popular with local holidaymaker and TV/movie star, Sarah Jessica Parker; she belts hers at the waist. Many of the garments are hand-finished by home workers in their houses.
