The weaving of The Ordinariate Tartan having now been completed, we are delighted to report that the tartan has arrived in Inverness.

Now the task of making up all the items ordered begins. Some of the items are made in the Highland of Scotland by Ruth Black at The Worshop, Inchmore, just outside Inverness, and others by the weavers Ingles Buchan in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. Orders will be dispatched as soon as they are made and we hope to have them all sent out by the end of May.

The weaving of The Ordinariate Tartan at the weavers Inglis Buchan
in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders has now been completed.

The woven tartan has now gone to the finishers to be washed and prepared for making the numerous items that have been ordered through Kickstarter and through this website, a process that should take no more than 2 weeks.

The whole process has taken slightly longer than anticipated due to the pandemic but we are hopeful that the items that have been ordered will be ready to be dispatched soon after Easter

I will be contacting each of the people who have placed an order through Kickstarter or through this website during the next eight days to confirm your address, etc, and exactly what you have ordered . . . and again, thank you for your support.    Father Len

The process of weaving
The Ordinariate Tartan has begun
at the weavers Inglis Buchan
in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders.

The first part of the process is the warping.

The warp threads are those that run the length
of the fabric. They have to be prepared first,
winding them in order onto a warp mill
from which they are transferred to the
warp beam of the loom. These threads
are each 65 metres long.

Once the warp is beamed, weaving can begin,
hopefully some time next week.
