Homespun Tartan Fly Plaid (catalog tartan list O)
We recommend our Homespun Tartan Fly Plaid as an accessory to match our Homespun Starter Kilts and Phillabegs. As you can see from the picture, it is brooched at the shoulder and allowed to drape down the back. In general you want to choose a fly plaid made from the same fabric as your kilt.

The standard finish is about an inch of fringe on each cut end of the fabric — just enough to keep it from fraying. Because Homespun is a looser weave, deep fringe (about 2 inches) is standard. The other two sides are the finished fabric selvages. Other finish options are available.
Choose standard size (36″ x 54″) or XL (54″ x 54″).
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.
