100% wool or silk sashes, scarves, stoles

 100% wool or silk sashes, scarves and stoles  


The Askival of Strathearn sashes,  scarves, shawls, and plaids are made from 5 oz twill weave 100% silk tartan or light weight 100% wool, woven in Scotland and handcrafted in the Askival of Strathearn studio.


Handcrafting the traditional 5 knotted fringe

The fringes are hand frayed, taking care not to catch the warp threads and then are traditionally knotted with patience and diligence, paying attention to the pattern, tension, and uniformity of the knotting. Because the technique requires skill and is  labour intensive, this traditional fringing is becoming less available. The time to fray, knot and finish ranges from 8 to 12 hours depending on size of silk cloth.

100% silk

The twill weave emulates the kilt tartan’s weave and drapes beautifully. The twill weave is strong, does not wrinkle very easily and recovers quite well. It is light and comfortable,  warm in winter and cool in summer.

You can also have a bespoke scarf, shawl or plaid and choose the size, and the style of fringing.

At present, the readily available silk is in the Black Watch, Strathearn, Grey Douglas, Princess Mary and the Stewart tartans. However, your own tartan can be specially woven and will cost a little bit more to allow for the weaver’s set up costs.
