OUTLANDER Fraser Handfasting

This OUTLANDER Fraser handfasting suits an Outlander themed wedding, because we make it out of the official Fraser tartan from the show. To make this tartan fabric, Scottish millers weave together a yarn made out of a blend of polyester and viscose fiber. This blend of fibers contributes to a strong fabric with none of the drawbacks of wool. As a result, this handfasting weathers well through time as an enduring memento of your long-lasting love.

About the Fraser Tartan from OUTLANDER: The Series

Starz teamed up with a mill in Scotland in order to create these tartans in the most authentic way possible. This tartan consists of colors grey, brown, gold, red, and black. The neutral tones of brown and grey take up most of the space in the pattern, seemingly imitating the expanse of stone and brown vegetation of the Scottish Highlands in winter. The small stripes of black are hardly noticeable, and the gold and red act as accents. You might recognize it as the tartan that Jamie Fraser wears for his wedding.

The Fraser tartan for OUTLANDER is modeled after the Fraser Hunting Weathered Tartan. (Available in homespun and light weight tartans.) The latter tartan consists of large expanses of grey and brown, and small accents of white and red. Hunting tartans are, in general, a more natural colored version of clan tartans. Because of this, they blend into natural environments and camouflage the wearer. Weathered tartans tend to be a more faded version of tartans, because they often come in natural hues. When comparing the two tartans, one can see the aspects that the designer borrowed from the Fraser Hunting Weathered Tartan. He created a wonderfully calming tartan that lends itself well to the natural setting of OUTLANDER: The Series.

About the Material

We carry both a pure wool fabric and a poly/viscose blend of fabric in the official Fraser tartan pattern from OUTLANDER: the Series. We make the handfasting in this listing out of the poly/viscose blend, which is 65% polyester and 35% viscose. The qualities of this fabric make the handfasting machine washable (although we recommend dry clean only), smooth, and hypoallergenic. Those sensitive to wool will love that it does not make them feel itchy and that it has no tooth to it. Wool tends to pill and felt when used often or washed improperly, so you’ll have an easier time caring for the poly/viscose blend of fabric. It also lasts longer than wool, so it makes this handfasting a long-lasting memento of your special day.
