Since 1991, Fisherman Out of Ireland has been producing knitwear blending the ancient techniques and material of Donegal knitting enlivened by modern styling and clever use of color and luxury yarns. Fisherman Out of Ireland uses only natural fibres and much of the yarn is spun by Donegal Yarns, also in Kilcar, alongside internationally obtained cashmere and alpaca blends, pure Merino and lambs wool for luxurious insulation.
In the signature Fisherman Out of Ireland style, the ribs and stitches inspired by traditional Aran patterns are combined with a fresh perspective in sweaters, hats and scarves to define the total modern Irish look. This extensive range of knitwear for gents and ladies is sold throughout Ireland, Europe, the United States and Asia.
The village of Kilcar, home to Fisherman Out of Ireland, is located in south west Donegal, between the fishing port of Killybegs and majestic cliffs of Slieve League. Fisherman Out of Ireland employs a loyal local team of 21 people, many of whom have been with the company from the start. Visitors are invited to take a tour of the knitwear factory and browse through the full range of knitwear in the showroom.
