Homespun Great Kilt

Keep tradition alive with your own homespun great kilt! The great kilt was a popular and practical tartan style until the Act of 1746 prohibited all forms of highland dress. This historical style allows for a classic pleated bottom kilt while providing extra fabric to create a cape-like hood or additional folds to store your shillelagh. Endlessly customizable, the great kilt allows for your own width, height, and provides an option to add Cheater Pleats™ for simplicity. Made in-house at The Celtic Croft in the USA, our homespun great kilt is a durable and classic option for modern wear.

    A quality product at a very affordable price. Homespun feels very like a pure, albeit rustic, wool
    I would echo the sentiment that a bit of additional width would be nice to allow it to be worn over my head, but it really garners attention and positive feedback when hand pleated and worn.
    I have zero reservations about this kilt and see more in my future.
    I did purchase the 5 yard, even with a 38″ waist. The extra yard is forgiving, whether I add bit of girth or stay close to fighting trim.

    I ordered a 4 yard Homespun Great Kilt in the Scottish National tartan, and I am pretty happy with it. I wanted to go the traditional historic route (i.e. not the modern version of the kilt, but rather, as it were, “the whole nine yards”), and this seems to be a pretty good starter for that. “Starter” because it is cheaper than other options, including 100% wool (I might like to get a wool one eventually). That said, it does have a nice quality feel to it; slightly scratchy and with a nice weight. There’s hand craftsmanship for you. “Pretty happy” and “Pretty good” (as opposed to completely good and happy) because a) I wish it were a bit wider than a yard and a half so that it could go over my head when being worn as a cloak, and b) I’m sort of starting to wish I had ordered at least 5 yards long instead of 4, though I’m of two minds about it. In the description above, it says
    4 Yard (fits up to a 38″ waist)
    5 Yard (fits up to a 48″ waist)
    6 Yard (fits up to a 60″ waist)
    What’s not mentioned (and I overlooked) is that the larger lengths should also be able to fit smaller waists, if one makes the pleats denser (can I get verification on this?). I mentioned above that I’m of two minds about whether I wish I had ordered a longer kilt, because again, it’s a starter (read “cheaper”) kilt, and making it longer would have cost more so I’m not sure if I would have ordered a longer one even if I had known then what I have since conjectured.

    All in all, it’s pretty good and I’m pretty happy; the main thing is that I do wish it was wider so that it could reach above my head.

    Perhaps eventually I will order a nine yard long, 5 1/2 foot wide, 100% wool Great Kilt, but my wallet (or sporran?) isn’t ready for that yet.
