Poly/Viscose Piper’s Plaid
Compliment your kilt with a matching piper’s plaid! A piper’s plaid is not just for pipers. You may also wear it on very formal occasions. Wear it with a Prince Charlie or other formal attire. Made from a full width of tartan, 3 1/2 yards long! Our seamstress pleats and stitches the end that you wear across the body. It also looks excellent folded and brooched on the shoulder, as our friend Ronald wears it in our main photo.

- Which shoulder do you want to wear it on? (Hint — if you are right-handed, you’ll want it on your left shoulder.)
Made by us here in the USA from poly/viscose tartan woven in the UK. We pleat and stitch one end, and finish each end with a nicely fringed edge.
What is Poly/Viscose?
Poly is short for polyester, which is a durable, smooth, synthetic fiber. You may know viscose by the name rayon. Workers make rayon from cellulose fiber, which comes from wood and plants. In this case, the viscose is made to imitate wool. These two fibers blend together to create a durable, non-felting, non-pilling, hypoallergenic fabric that retains the same wonderful, natural aesthetics of wool.
