Homespun Great Kilt

Our Homespun tartan is made from a 55/45 blend of polyester and wool. Homespun tartan is woven 52″-54″ wide. It is woven by hand on old-world looms and looks authentic to what would have been woven historically. The yarn is worsted but not spun as tightly as modern machine-made tartan. The cloth is also not as tightly woven. Homespun tartan will pleat by hand easily but will not develop a sharp edge. Snags, pulls, holes, and other blemishes are common. Because it is hand-woven, these flaws are a natural part of its character. Giving this tartan its hand-made, artisanal character. Homespun is approximately a 12 oz. fabric, but it feels thicker due to its looser weave.

Pleating instructions are included with each kilt. Traditionally, these kilts are pleated each time you wear them. We ask for size information to ensure that your kilt will fit you correctly, but we do not pleat the kilt for you unless you also select Cheater Pleats™ as an additional option. 

A 4-yard kilt will fit up to about a 34-inch waist, a 5-yard kilt will fit up to about a 44-inch waist, and a 6-yard kilt will fit up to about a 50-inch waist. If you are larger than this, please get in touch with us for pricing on larger kilts. Also, If your waist size is close to one of these limits, consider the next size larger if you want deeper pleats or pleats closer together. For example:
If you have a 34-inch waist, a 4-yard great kilt will have pleats 1.5 – 2 inches wide and 3-4 inches deep. A 5-yard great kilt will have pleats approximately 1 inch wide and 3-4 inches deep or 1.5 – 2 inches wide and 6-8 inches deep. In this example, a 6-yard great would be overkill with a 34-inch waist, but it would have pleats about 1 inch wide and 6-8 inches deep.

4 yds (fits up to a 34in waist)
5 yds (fits up to a 44in waist)
6 yds (fits up to a 52in waist)

How to measure for your Greatkilt:
1) Measure the waist size at your actual waist, where you usually wear your pants.
2) Measure from your waist to about the middle of the knee.
Have someone help you. The measurement will change if you bend even a little while trying to do it yourself.
Note—The length measurement is only relevant if you are adding Cheater Pleats™, but the form above asks for it regardless, so you might as well do it right!

  1. T. Mainland (verified owner)

    It fits, it looks good and is sturdy. Cannot tell that it is a wool poly blend at all.

  2. Micheál McEvoy (verified owner)

    I am very happy with the Feileadh Mòr that I purchased. The Outlander tartan is a good subdued plaid. Just what I was looking for.
    Since I chose no cheater pleats, it is taking a bit of pleating, putting it on, taking it off, repleat, try again. Wonderful kilt.

  3. Ryan (verified owner)

    I love this product! I purchased it in my clans tartan (Sinclair) and it it absolutely beautiful. It feels very durable and easy to take care of and is plenty long to pleat properly. The only complaint I have is between my height and gut size it doesn’t reach over my shoulder very well, but that’s just a problem with me being 6′ tall and having a long midsection. Otherwise it’s fantastic.

  4. Cole (verified owner)

    Awesome, absolutely perfect 👌

  5. Jason

    Tis a thing of beauty. The tartan looks amazing and the material looks as authentic as can be, I feel like I would be right at home in the highlands of old. I canna think of bad thing to say about it. It came much faster than I expected as well.

  6. gprez

    Order met all expectations and delivery was much faster than expected. I will definitely use Celtic Croft for future orders. Thank y’all very much.

  7. Chris S

    The great kilt is excellent. I have some learning to do on how to wear it properly. Cheater pleats were a good addition. Love the fabric and the pattern. Service was excellent.

  8. Joel Steward

    Excellent! I’ve finally gotten the “hang” of it; putting the great kilt on and tucking and buckling it all just the way I want it. Looks great!!
