1730 Tartan Throw

Originally woven in 1730 in pure silk as a “Brides Plaid”, this tartan 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.

100% Lambswool

Size: 140cms x 195 cms (210cms with fringes)
