For the first time, Spey has produced a work of art in 100 percent wool with the classic check of the Spey tartan. Our bespoke tartan pays homage to the pastoral country estates dotted throughout Speyside and along the River Spey, wherein resides a critically endangered species of Scottish freshwater pearl mussel.
Handcrafted by artisan weavers in Scotland, this 12-foot wrap has as its muse the traditional Shepherd’s Plaid, which offered Scottish hill farmers protection from the elements and helped them carry lost lambs back to the fold. Culminating in a purled fringe at either end, the length of the wrap is finished with a distinctive ‘natural’ no-hem selvedge from wool yarns that are never cut.
Proceeds from this tartan benefit the threatened environment of the River Spey.
