Care: how to care for your Wool product (see below)

Brief Clan History

A tartan that reflects the vibrancy of Scotlands largest city. Once proudly known as the Second City of the Empire. Although much of its heavy industry has declined, the city whose name derives from the Gaelic for Dear green place is now one of Europes financial centres.

The Glasgow tartan can be dated with certainty to the beginning of the 19th century. Full details of the pattern appear in Messrs Wilson of Bannockburns 1819 Key Pattern Book, but it also appears in Wilson papers dating from 1800.

The pattern lay dormant for many years until it was revived in the 1960s. Wilsons are known to have applied the names of town and cities to patterns where they sold well, or had been obtained from.

No other reason can be found to link the pattern with the place. Present day usage defines this as a district pattern, suitable for use by persons having links with the place, or as a memento of their visit.

How to wash

In the first instance we recommend dry cleaning all wool products.

If you wish wash by hand or by machine please do not wring the item, or allow the item to float free in a washing machine. when using a machine always place your product in a pillow case so that it does not tangle or loose its shape.

By hand wash gently using luke warm water and when drying taking great care to ensure that the item is placed flat on a towel for it to dry. This way the product will keep its shape and its softness, and look as new as when first bought.
Always use a recommended wool detergent ie Woolite.
