All our tartans can be woven in modern colours (darker, deeper, fuller shades) or ancient colours (lighter, softer shades) or reproduction shades (historically authentic).
If you do not see the shades you prefer here, please enquire about a special commission.
Popular Lightweight Tartans
These are our most sought-after traditional tartan patterns, plus a few enduring designs of our own creation. We produce this range due to popular demand for these much-loved setts in our unique authentic finish.
Our lightweight tartans are woven in 11oz pure new wool, giving your garments a noticeably premium feel (and longer life) than the thinner 9 or 10oz yarns now mostly used elsewhere. Then we weave it at 50 threads per inch, which is time-consuming and expensive in raw materials. But we feel the significantly tighter weave than the cost-conscious industrial mills gives a finer feeling and more durable fabric with a lovely quality of touch.
These fabrics are woven at 56" wide on our double width traditional looms, for the 'natural' cut-cloth look unobtainable with the high speed looms now used elsewhere.
