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 its character. Homespun is approximately a 10/11oz. fabric, but feels thicker due to its looser weave. Homespun tartan is woven 52"-54" wide.

Just a reminder — tartan is not returnable, so please order a swatch first if you are unsure.
