1775 Stole - First woven in 1775, this tartan is believed to be an 'apprentice piece'. The pattern is complex and would have shown the skills of the young hand weaver. This is probably the first time since its creation in 1775 that the tartan has been commercially manufactured.
1730 Stole - Originally woven in 1730 in pure silk as a “Brides Plaid”, this pattern was discovered in the archive of the Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore. It is most unusual in that it incorporates 8 colours in a very complex pattern, and would have taken great skill to hand weave over 280 years ago.
Aberlour Stole - Based on the Grant family tartan, this design by Knockando Woolmill has been created to commemorate the bicentenary of Aberlour. Aberlour was founded in 1812 by Charles Grant of Elchies who was a leading light of the community. Another Charles Grant was born in Strondhu, Knockando in 1807 and was headmaster at Aberlour School from 1844 to 1874.
Mini Moorland Stole - The Mini Moorland is a mixture of shades in a multicolor block check design, encapsulating the rich hues of the Highland landscape.
Stoles are 100% Lambswool, and measure approx. 190 x 75 cms plus fringe.
