Originally categorised as 'Fashion' but an early labelled sample was found at Kilbarchan Weaver's Cottage (3.5 miles south of Glasgow Airport) in Ayrshire, so it was re-categorised as Clan/Family. Thread count is from the Kilbarchan sample and was re-checked by EBW Sept 2003. The problem with dating the Kilbarchan samples is that the closest one can get is early 1950s when weaving ceased in the village. The samples could have been woven very much earlier than that, but there is no way of so proving. The original note attached to this database entry read: "Shulins Woolen Mill, Claremont, New Hampshire, USA." See also "Nicolson Green (#322) which is virtually identical and dated to 1968. Note similarity to "Old Stewart".
