11oz (Light weight)

Pure New Wool

An exceptionally soft and smooth lightweight tartan - in our view the world's finest. It will be woven to order for you, using traditional methods, by the world's last artisan tartan weaving mill, deep in the Scottish borders. It's an ideal all-round fabric for ladies garments, accessories, and homewares, Or it can be used for a lightweight kilt as it has a full kilting selvedge. D.C. Dalgliesh is Scotland's last authentic artisan tartan weaver. Learn more about this remarkable mill and its products on the <a href="http://www.dcdalgliesh.co.uk">D. C. Dalgliesh</a> web site. We recommend the video, which shows how your tartan is woven! Note that these images are mostly computer generated. The shades of yarn our expert weavers use to create something traditional and beautiful for you may differ. But it will be traditionally correct, and simply lovely. As this fabric is woven to order, a minimum order length of four metres applies.

Ancient Palette

These are the yarn shades we recommend for this tartan. You may also select alternative yarns from our stock yarn range to create your own varient palette. Please enquire

Ancient tartan colours are lighter in tone, as if aged by years of exposure to light, though ironically a relatively recent invention. In the 1950s weavers began to create lighter toned variants once the novelty of strongly toned 'Modern' dyestuffs was starting to ebb, and a fashion re-emerged for older-looking colours. The lighter tones often make a tartan's sett (pattern) easier to distinguish than in Modern colours.
