Brief Clan History

From the gaelic Mac Shuibhe or son of Sweyn, the MacSween clan claim kinship with the Irish high kings, of the same descent as the great clan Donald.

Son of the Fairy People and Son of the Secret Peacemaker are two of the possible derivations from Gaelic of the proud name of the MacPhie. With a close kinship to the powerful MacDonald Lords of the Isles, acting as Hereditary Keeper of the Records of the Lords of the Isles, their homeland was the island of Colonsay.

The MacPhies, Sons of The Dark One of Peace, are one of the several branches of Clan Alpine, descended from Kenneth MacAlpine, King of Scots. An older form of the name is MacDuffie, so written in a charter of 1463, from the Gaelic Mac-Dubh-Sithe.

The Chiefs were Heriditary Keepers of the Records of the Isles and they were in possession of the Isle of Colonsay until, in 1615, Malcolm MacPhie joined John of Islay in his ill-fated rebellion.

It was after the forfeiture of the Lords of the Isles that the MacPhiesgave their allegiance to the Islay MacDonalds. After this misfortune,the MacPhies were a broken clan. Some went to Lochaber and followed Lochiel, others settled round the Firth of Clyde, others again went to Ireland, where the name is sometimes found as MacAfie and MacCaffey. MacPhees from Lochaber will use the Cameron Badge of Oak but those who have no local allegiance will use the Pine of Clan Alpine. Another spelling is MacFie.

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.
