The Shilasdair Yarns naturally dyed tartan is on the Victorian Dobcross loom and is being woven. The subtle tones in the natural dyed yarn really stand out, and we think the tartan looks pretty stunning! It will be great to see the finished product made up into kilts, with the dobcross woven selvedge forming the hem.
