Menzies Dress Dance Red

11oz (Light weight)

Pure New Wool

Unquestionably the finest dancers' dress tartans. The pure new wool yarn is woven more tightly than by the bulk producers. This gives a crisper pleat and more robust wear, far superior to the flimsy merino now used elsewhere.

Modern 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

Before the twentieth century, almost all dyeing used vegetable dyes. The advent of chemical dyes in the mid-1800s introduced the possibility of stronger and brighter shades, which became immediately popular, appealing to Victorian sensibilities with their liking for strong colour schemes. Tartans woven in 'Modern Colours' are characterised by darker and more vivid shades.
