Whether you are allergic to wool, or just want a great looking tartan for less, a synthetic blend is a great way to go! Hard wearing, washable, and cool to wear, to the untrained eye it is nearly indistinguishable from expensive 100% wool tartan. While the weave is not as authentic as Homespun tartan, many people appreciate the crisp look of the modern tartan fabrics in an Ancient Kilt. With about about 60 tartans available to choose from, it's the most affordable option for many tartans.
Poly/Viscose Ancient Kilts
6 yds — Fits up to about a 38in. waist
8 yds — Fits up to about a 48in. waist
10 yds — Fits 50in.+ waist sizes
Made in the USA from light weight (10/11 oz.) tartan, woven in the UK from a 65/35 blend of polyester and viscose. Poly/viscose tartans are not woven with a kilting selvedge, so kilts will be hemmed. Pleating instructions are included with each kilt. Traditionally these kilts are pleated each time you wear them. We ask for size information to be sure that your kilt will fit you correctly, but we do not pleat the kilt for you unless you also select Cheater Pleats™ as an additional option.
How to measure for your Ancient Kilt:
1) Measure the waist size at your actual waist, where you usually wear your pants.
2) Measure the length from your waist to about the middle of the knee.
Have someone help you. If you bend even a little while trying to do it yourself, the measurement will change.
