MATERIALS

WHAT IS TARTAN WEIGHT?

16 oz (heavy weight)
Great for traditional Scottish kilt.

12-13 oz (medium weight)
If you plan to wear your kilt on a very hot day, a medium weight material will suit you very well. This weight is also good for skirts, and handbags.

10 oz (light weight)
Not recommended for a kilt, as it will be too light. If you are buying a skirt or a tartan dress, this will be the right choice.


Order a Swatch
To check the material. It costs £5.10 and is fully reimbursable towards your next purchase.

Description

The Armstrongs were a lowland family and as such would not traditionally have had a tartan. However the Sobieski Stewarts invented one for them in their 1842 Vestiarium Scoticum and it took hold as it was then included in J Claude's 1880 pattern books Clans Originaux and Scotch Tartans with a much lighter green.
