Homespun Wool Blend Tartan
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 it’s character. Homespun is approximately a 10/11oz. fabric, but feels thicker due to it’s looser weave. Homespun tartan is woven 54″ wide.
The swatch images below are as accurate as we can make them. HOWEVER, every monitor is different — what we see on our computer screen is going to be a little different than what you see on yours. ALSO, an image is a poor substitute for an actual piece of fabric. If you need to know exactly what a tartan look like before placing an order, please request a homespun fabric swatch first (only $4 each with free shipping).
