Do you need a swatch of a wool tartan for color matching purposes for your wedding? Would you like to see a piece of the cloth before committing to a full kilt? Are you looking for a pair of hand knit hose to match your kilt, but don't have the right colors to match? Order a swatch of cloth!
Please note: Wool Swatches are ordered from the mills in the UK, so swatch orders will take 2 - 4 weeks to ship. Please factor that in when working on a deadline.
If you order a swatch and later purchase a kilt in that tartan, you can request that we refund your swatch price once you place the kilt order.

- Swatches Really Help You Decide Amanda
Price Value QualityI ordered four 13-ounce Gordon Modern tartan swatches from different mills.
It was great to lay out all the swatches and compare the way the colors and the weaving were implemented by each mill. And some of the differences were quite significant to the eye.
The swatches definitely helped me decide on the specific tartan I want when it comes time for to order a kilt. (Posted on 8/23/2018)
- Excellent and Fast Brad
Quality Price ValueI am at a toss-up between which mill to use for my Black Watch 5 yd. wool kilt I am treating myself to for Christmas this year. This swatch came within just a couple days and is fairly large, showing a pretty significant spread of the sett. I highly recommend this route for anyone who is up in the air on which tartan to order and worried about differences between online pics and the actual fabric in hand. (Posted on 8/8/2018)

- Great quality Rob
Quality Price ValueI ordered 11oz swatches in Irvine and MacCauley and they are very nice. The quality of the wool is very nice. It does not feel as if it is itchy at all. They came a lot faster than I had thought. I am looking forward to ordering my great kilt in one of them! Thanks guys/gals! (Posted on 6/7/2018)
- Just what I needed WillMarIV
Quality Price ValueOrdered Swatches in Ferguson Modern, Ancient, Weathered, and Balquhidder. For me this wasn't in order to chose a tartan for a kilt, but to take with me to festivals and games during which I host a clan tent for the Clan Ferguson Societyof N.A. I'll be displaying thee for visitors to see some of the options. Glad USA Kilts added some business cards too, as I'll put them out. (Posted on 4/26/2018)
- Even Better Than Looking at a Photo! Steve C
Price Value QualityI have been researching different non-clan tartan designs for a possible kilt purchase in the spring of 2018. It has been really fun to page through the different design on the USA Kilts webpages. Once I found a nice tartan design, I wondered how the cloth would look in person. I am here to tell you that the USA Kilts photos really do show the tartans well. My tartan swatch completely matched the photo on the website. If anything, the colors are more vibrant in person. You can really get a sense of the material by ordering a sample. I really appreciate that USA Kilts will refund the cost of the swatch later if you order a kilt in that same tartan. All in all a great way to research possible tartan designs before you order your kilt. (Posted on 3/2/2018)

- Nice sample Melrose
Price Value QualityGood to see the colors of the 'ancient' tartan. I should have also ordered a sample of the 'modern' as well, to compare. (Posted on 10/26/2017)
- the $$$, it burns! CFriz
Quality Price ValueI know that these swatches are coming from the UK and are inherently expensive due to the specialized nature of the cloth, but geez, $9 a pop gets pricey to compare colors and weights. That said, BEAUTIFUL fabric, large swatches, and definitely enough that those crafty folks can make something out of their sample (Posted on 7/5/2017)
