The Crios is an Irish woven woollen cord in bright colours which is traditionally used in Celtic handfasting ceremonies.
This cord is a blend of burgundy with purple and lilac.
This pattern is symmetrical, symbolising the balance of the masculine and the feminine. In the centre a double helix suggests the essence of creation running through life.
This cord is made from Aran Yarn from Ireland’s two remaining woollen mills in Kerry and Donegal. It measures 78" long and 1.5" wide, perfect for tying around the wedding couples hands twice, with room for the knot on top.
