Royal Stewart Hard Tartan
1820s

Hard Tartan is rare.  It is woven from stiff worsted wool, the fibres combed into alignment before being spun into a yarn. The resulting yarn is smooth and cool and will weave into a crisp looking and heavy wool cloth, ideal for kilts or coats, being extremely warm and waterproof. The fabric will have been woven by Wm Wilson and Son of Bannockburn*

When King George IV visited Edinburgh in 1822, Sir Walter Scott, who was involved in organizing the celebrations, called for everyone to be plaided and plumed’** in tartan.
