This crios is in the high key colours much loved by the Aran Islanders.  It also happens to have the colours of the Irish flag and the American flag woven in to it to symbolize the weaving together of the lives of the Irish in America.

This pattern is symmetrical, symbolizing the balance of the masculine and the feminine. 

This cord is made from Aran Yarn from Ireland’s two remaining woollen mills in Kerry and Donegal. It measures 78" long and 2" wide, perfect for tying around the wedding couples hands twice, with room for the knot on top.

When weaving , I bring to it my highest quality of energy and attention. Weaving lends itself to this meditative state of mind. When making a Crios for a couple’s handfasting ritual, I weave my good wishes and intent into the piece for the couple on their wedding day and in their lives together.
