Premium Wool

Made from 100% pure new wool, woven in Scotland. This is the same tartan most of you are familiar with, used in modern, tailored, formal kilts. This is your best option if you are looking for a specific tartan, as there are over 500 available. We work with 5 different mills in Scotland to bring you the widest selection possible. All tartans are double width (54-60 inches wide) unless otherwise specified. Because it is cut from the roll and shipped from Scotland just for you, tartan yardage is considered a special order item.

Homespun Wool

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.

Synthetic Blend

Braveheart Tartan

The Celtic Croft offers the same 100% wool tartan, woven in Scotland, as that used in the filming of the movie Braveheart! A very rustic tartan, woven in natural wool and earth tones, believed to be authentic to that period.

Welsh Tartans

Enjoy a selection of Welsh tartans actually woven in Wales! Light weight, 100% premium wool. Woven 59 inch wide. Recommended for ladies wear, accessories, and light-weight kilts. Welsh tartan is not woven with kilting selvages, so a hem will be required for kilt (and skirt) making. Because it is cut from the roll and shipped from Wales just for you, tartan yardage is considered a special order item.

Irish Tartans

Made from 100% pure new wool, woven in Scotland (yes, Irish tartans, woven in Scotland). All tartans are double width (54-60 inches wide) unless otherwise specified. Because it is cut from the roll and shipped from Scotland just for you, tartan yardage is considered a special order item.

Custom Weave Tartan

There are thousands of registered tartans, but only about 1400 are in production. If your tartan isn't otherwise available, we can have it woven for you! These tartans are woven in Scotland and are available in 12oz. (medium weight) or 16 oz. (heavy weight) premium wool. Both weights are priced at $95 a yard. The tartans are 28" wide. There is a minimum order of 4 yds. Please contact us and specify what tartan you are interested in having woven.

Tartan Swatches

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. Swatches are not returnable.
Important Note — Unless otherwise noted, please allow 6-12 weeks for delivery. We agree that this is a long time to wait for a swatch. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about it. Our swatches come from several different weavers in Scotland, and they don't all place the priority on swatches that we would like them to. In fact, some of them only cough up swatches very grudgingly, after we pester them two or three times with repeated requests. Sorry. We do the best we can to get them to you as quickly as possible!
