Piper's Plaid for Stephen.

This Shepherd's plaid was very different to the heavy fabrics that I had previously woven; Keith’s Shepherd’s Plaid was designed for outdoor wear in the traditional style, heavy, densely woven wool to withstand the weather in the uplands. Stephen’s piper’s plaid was required to fit in with existing plaids worn as a uniform in his Northumbrian Pipe band; the fabric is very light-weight wool, dyed and bleached so the colours are very black and white, rather than the softness of the natural colours; a far narrower fabric designed for show rather than function.

Katherine, Stephen’s wife has written an interesting blog post about commissioning the plaid and seeing the work in progress. You can read all about it here.
