We especially recommend our
homespun tartan for Ancient Kilts, Great Kilts, Phillabegs, and other
clothing for reenactment purposes. Our Homespun tartan is made from a
55/45 blend of polyester & wool, woven by hand on old-world looms.
It looks very authentic to what would have been woven historically. The
yarn is worsted, but not spun as tightly as modern machine-made tartan.
The cloth is also not as tightly woven. Homespun tartan will pleat by
hand easily, but will not develop a sharp edge. Small snags, pulls, holes
and other assorted blemishes are common. Because it is hand woven, these
flaws are a natural part of it's character. Homespun is approximately
a 10/11oz. fabric, but feels thicker due to it's looser weave. Homespun
tartan is woven 54" wide.
