Did You Know? The word "ruana" comes from a Spanish word meaning woolen garment. Although similar in concept to a cape, a ruana's front and back panels are of equal lengths, and the sleeves are not stitched together. This design allows the wearer to throw one, or both, panels over the opposite shoulder.
About the Artists. Kerry Woollen Mills, situated on the Ring of Kerry on Ireland's Atlantic coast, has been creating fabrics and yarn from fine wool for more than 300 years. One of the last surviving traditional woollen mills still manufacturing in the beautiful Kerry countryside, it is set in a rural location with many of the 300-year-old buildings still standing and functional. In 1904, the mill was bought by the Eadie family, and it continues under the fourth generation of family ownership today.
