Pure New Wool

Simply the finest tartan available. Your pure new wool fabric will be woven to order using traditional methods by the world's last artisan tartan weaving mill, deep in the Scottish borders. This robust fabric has a higher thread density than usual, and is ideal for kiltmaking, or also for upholstery, in fact anywhere you'd want a really durable finish. 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.

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.
