When asked what the weather is like in the north west of Ireland, I reply - and with complete honesty, might I add! - that it is sunny every day.

Because regardless of how blustery, damp, and dark the day may be, there are those magical moments, around evening time, when the storm clouds part, and the landscape is bathed in glorious, warm sunshine, and we drop what we are doing and stand in our gardens transfixed by its brief but brilliant glow.

The Sunny Every Day cardigan reflects on these idyllic moments, while catering to the more typical realities of a fickle climate. Knit in hardy Donegal tweed with cheerful cables and a flattering, subtly flared hemline, this garment is sure to withstand any weather, and to bring a bit of sunshine to the everyday.
