Scottish Tartans. / Writings · 1 April 2024

Scottish Tartans.

This tartan was first mentioned by Wilsons of Bannockburn in 1805. They say it was named after Sir Ralph Abercrombie and produced by Wilsons about the end of the 18th Century.
The sett was recorded by Logan about 1831 but his documented thread count was so ‘clumsy’ (Scarlett, 1990) and in view of the many ‘aberrations’ in some of his data, James Scarlett suggested that modifications could be made although the ones implemented to produce the generally accepted version of Abercrombie are not those suggested by Scarlett.
