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.
Free shipping! When you have more than one tartan to choose from, requesting swatches is a great way to decide which tartan you like best before investing in your kilt. Each swatch is approximately 6-8 inches square.
