I ordered a 100% wool hooded cardigan for women on Jan 9th, and received it today, Jan 13th. That’s pretty fast, considering it was shipped from Ireland and I am in the US!
First of all, I am always a bit nervous and reluctant to order from overseas, but ordered one item that was on sale and with a 20% coupon, just to give them a try. I have sensitivities to polyester and other synthetic fibers, so I was looking for something warm that was 100% wool. They did not disappoint! This sweater is very high quality, beautiful, comfortable, and 100% wool. I love it so much! Shipping is a little pricey, but is a flat rate of $35 to the US whether you buy 1 item or 10. However, even with the shipping cost, it was still within the price (or less) of what I would pay for a 100% wool cardigan sweater here in the states (for something far lesser in quality). I am confident this sweater will last the rest of my life. It was well worth the investment. I will be ordering more items from Aran Sweater Market! I am so happy to have found this company!

We were wandering around Galway and stumbled into the Aran Sweater market and were blown away at the array from clothing and garments they offered. They were all very fairly priced and offered free shipping home to the states (all orders over €100 get this offer) but it was Sarah that made the Aran Sweater Market so grand. She helped us find everything, told us the history of the building (the old foundation in all of Galway!) and allowed us to wear our sweaters for days and still shipped them home for us after we were done. We bought more sweaters because of her when we came back to drop our sweaters off. Sarah deserves a raise 😉

I was so excited to find my maiden and married surnames in the Clans and ordered my Brother and husband each a blanket in their clans. I was so thrilled with them that I ordered two more for my other brothers and a poncho for my MIL to arrive before Christmas. Was so disappointed when only one throw arrived with the package and shipping clearly marked 2. I used the online chat and was not at all nice (sorry, I’m in full blown Holiday psychosis!) and they promised to ship one out the next day. Went back in to check- they were closed for the holidays! Imagine my surprise when it arrived later the next day! What kind of fairy’s do you have making deliveries! I hope the USPS hires your people- the first throw I ordered still has not arrived to my brothers 3 states away! Ugh! I can’t thank you enough! I hope someday you have our clans in the sweaters- and I will surely tell all my Mc, O’ and wanna be Irish friends about your wonderful store! Can’t wait to come in person once this stupid pandemic ends!

I ordered 2 medium sweaters, one for my son and one for my husband. They both arrived in a timely manner, but one was WAY bigger than the other - tagged a M but sized like an x-large. I’ve emailed them 3 times and used their online chat option, sent pictures with measurements, and have been totally ghosted. No responses to any of my inquiries as to how they want me to proceed with a sweater that is not wearable. Unless they remedy the situation I will continue to write reviews wherever I am able as this is not right - I invested a lot of money into these gifts and they have delivered an unusable product. Makes me sad as I was so excited to gift these sweaters this Christmas.

$35 shipping for one sweater

If you have enough money for one $100 sweater this company charges $35

If you order $2,000 worth of product (20 items) they charge $35 for shipping.

So basically you're being forced to pay for the shipping of people with a lot more money to spend, for no reason.

It doesn't cost $35 to ship a single sweater to the US - I've had 19 items of clothing shipped from England for less than $35

Anyways, their "savings" seems to be there for people who can more than afford their products.

There are multiple speeds/rates of shipping from Ireland - There's no need to upcharge a person with a single item of clothing in their cart 40% of the sweaters cost in shipping.

I have been reading other reviews and it is similarly what had happened to my order . I purchased three items paid over $300 and they send me one item wrong and cheaper item . Trying to have them exchange for the correct ones is like taking to a wall ! Their customer service is awful and they will keep you rounding up with bunch of lies , they are hoping you would give up eventually. I am going to report to the Better business Bureau. They should not get away with it! Just think how much money they are making by cheating customers in USA . Do not buy from this company !

Purchased two items internationally. One item much too small, the second was wrong color. Paid substantially to return the items with no recourse from company to replace with correct items. Voiced dissatisfaction many times, now can not get off email list!!!

I went to two of these places with my wife. Very disappointed.

You won't see many people in Ireland wearing these sweaters. Ask yourself why. Originally, they were heavy white sweaters oiled with lanolin, intended to protect fishermen. Now the sweaters are very light, and they're not oiled. When you hold one up, you can see through it. The prices are very inviting, but it looks like the sweaters are made to sell, not to wear. Flimsy.

I saw a few heavier sweaters...with heavier prices.

They had some caps that seemed to be of acceptable quality.

It's disappointing to see Irish retailers using low prices to convince people to buy sweaters that will turn out to have short lives.

I bought a wonderful hand knitted sweater on Inishmore and later bought the above referenced sweater from ASM. Ireland produces very little wool, so in both cases the wool was not Irish. Nearly all Irish sheep are raised for meat and their wool is very rough. I love the hand knitted sweater that I bought from the lady that knitted it. The ASM sweater was machine made, loosely woven, and snags very easily. It also is scratchy. The style was nice and the size was US standard, but if you're going to Inishmore, get the real thing! The price was actually about the same.

I returned the product, and then... NOTHING.

I purchased a cape on line - $345. My wife didn't like it and so i returned it. FED EX delivered it to the company on Feb 11, 2022. It's now 10 days later, and they haven't even processed it yet. The woman in the CHAT room wrote that they are shorthanded because one of the people in the returns dept is out with Covid. Just one... (how many do they have? three?)

Time to notify VISA.
