Homespun Wool Blend Tartan

We especially recommend our Homespun Wool Blend 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 inches wide.

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

  1. Ronda Robinson

    This was perfect for making wedding accessories, a less that half the cost of 100% wool.. I am sure I will order more in the future.

    Came just as advertised and good quality. Will take a little work to clean up when you get it, but worth the price. If this is for your very first kilt, do NOT get this fabric for a Great Kilt! I’ve only had this for one day and a great kilt is definitely a pain and a challenge! I’m gonna wear it everyday anyway, but I’m just saying. Will be ordering again.

    I needed this in a rush, and the shipping was superb. I have the pleats sewn and love the fit!

    I ordered this for my teenage son, who’s been wanting a homespun tartan for a while. He LOVES it! The material is beautiful and of good quality! He wears it throughout town in Asheville, and it was great at GeekOut convention last weekend. He looks forward to the Highland Games at Grandfather Mountain this summer, as well as taking it along on his school trip to China in June.

    Ordered this for some decorations and the cords for our handfasting ceremony. Very pleased with the quality, super fast shipping, and excellent service!

    Tartan is perfect! We plan on making hankies for the breast pocket of the groomsmen who are too chicken to wear kilts.

    I am super excited to be attending the Highland Games in Perthshire this year. My mother and two daughters and I will be visiting Scotland for the first time. The Clark Tartan material is beautiful! Mom is making me a kilt skirt to wear to the Games. Can’t wait to sport the family Tartan!!
