Weavers make our Homespun tartan from a 55/45 blend of polyester and wool. They weave it by hand on old-world looms, which gives it a very authentic look comparable to what would have been woven historically. Weavers use loosely spun worsted weight yarn, spun looser than that of modern, machine-made tartan. They also weave the tartan more loosely than most modern tartans. 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 10/11 oz. fabric, but feels thicker due to it’s looser weave.
