Classic lambswool scarf made in the beautiful Scottish Borders by Lochcarron Weavers. With a heritage dating back to 1892, Lochcarron weave the world’s largest collection of authentic tartans, a timeless blend of tradition and craftsmanship.

The scarf is made from the Isle of Skye Tartan. This beautiful tartan was instigated and registered in 1992 by Mrs Rosemary Nicolson Samios, an Australian of Skye descent, now living in Skye. It was selected through a worldwide competition won by Angus MacLeod from Lewis. Angus, a weaver to trade, produced the first commercial quantities in traditional kilt weight in 1993 at Lochcarron Weavers in North Strome, within view of the Cuillin Mountains. The colours of the tartan depict those of the island, often called the ‘Misty Isle’.
