Homespun Great Kilt

See below for Cheater Pleats(TM), options, and additional accessories.
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.

Homespun Great Kilt

Our Homespun tartan is made from a 55/45 blend of polyester and wool. Homespun tartan is woven 52"-54" wide. It is woven by hand on old-world looms, and 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 9/10oz. fabric, but feels thicker due to it's looser weave.

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. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.

A 4 yard kilt will fit up to about a 34 inch waist, a 5 yard kilt will fit up to about a 44 inch waist, and a 6 yard kilt will fit up to about a 50 inch waist. If you are larger than this please contact us for pricing on larger kilts. Also, If your waist size is close to one of these limits, consider the next size larger if you want deeper pleats or pleats closer together. For example:
If you have a 34 inch waist, a 4 yd greatkilt will have pleats 1.5 - 2 inches wide and 3-4 inches deep. A 5 yd greatkilt will have pleats approximately 1 inch wide and 3-4 inches deep or 1.5 - 2 inches wide and 6-8 inches deep. In this example a 6 yd greatkilt would be overkill with a 34 inch waist, but it would have pleats about 1 inch wide and 6-8 inches deep.

4 yds (fits up to a 34in waist)
5 yds (fits up to a 44in waist)
6 yds (fits up to a 52in waist)

How to measure for your Greatkilt:
1) Measure the waist size at your actual waist, where you usually wear your pants.
2) Measure 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.
Note ” The length measurement is really only relevant if you are adding Cheater Pleats„¢, but the form above asks for it regardless, so you might as well do it right!

Please allow 1-5 weeks for delivery.
Tis a thing of beauty. The tartan looks amazing and the material looks as authentic as can be, I feel like I would be right at home in the highlands of old. I canna think of bad thing to say about it. It came much faster than I expected as well.
Order met all expectations and delivery was much faster than expected. I will definitely use Celtic Croft for future orders. Thank y'all very much.
The great kilt is excellent. I have some learning to do on how to wear it properly. Cheater pleats were a good addition. Love the fabric and the pattern. Service was excellent.
Excellent! I've finally gotten the "hang" of it; putting the great kilt on and tucking and buckling it all just the way I want it. Looks great!!
everything i expected and more----- well done to all concerned
Great material, tartan is exactly as I expected, I will be proud to wear the colours of the Clan MacNeill to the next Cetic Festival, and Renn Fest!
The great kilt looks wonderful. The homespun fabric is comfortable and the price is unbeatable. The shipping was fast and the service is great.
