In the video in the Daily Mail account (below) Delia is wearing an identical pattern Aran sweater to the one my mother had bought in Ireland in the 80’s. My mother’s didn’t have the collar, it was round necked. Mum had worn hers for 10 years until she passed away. It was still like new and was washable. I inherited it in 1995 and have lived in it ever since. It is like having my beloved Mum’s arms around me. It’s hard when I have to wash it because I have to wait until it’s dry to wear it. Delia’s cardigan is cream where mine is cream with multi colour speckles. Unfortunately, mine is now wearing out, but only because the cuffs, round collar and bottom have lost their grip. I tried to get a copy made but couldn’t find that pattern. Then there one for sale on e-bay. Too small 🙁 I contacted the seller and got her to make me one but she couldn’t get the speckled wool. I love it! But I have to save it for best because of the colour. I am 73. The Aran cardigan is at least 38 years old. Well worth what Mum had paid for it.
I am hoping you will pass my comment to Delia so that she knows how valuable her work has been.
