Friend of Erin’s – and dressed similar to her, in a green sweater and hat (by Nora) with bainin trousers. Bainin, (pronounced Baw-neen) is the Gaelic for the natural white shade of the wool from the fleece.
The material for Niall’s bainin trousers is from Foxford Woollen Mills in Co. Mayo and we currently use Aran 100% pure wool knitting yarn in the colour Green Bushes from Kerry Woollen Mills which we buy in a 200g hank. Each trousers is individually cut out by hand and sewn in small quantities and the Aran Sweaters are handknit individually, thus shades and styles may vary depending on what wool and knitter we have.
