Scottish Tartans World Register: Spens 
Spens Fragment Artifact Tartan  WR1681



The fragment in the collection of the Highland Society of London, preserved in the Scottish National Museum, is made of very fine threads and labelled 'Old home made'. It has been suggested that the light green colour may, in fact, be light crimson, a mistake arising from the letters used to record the sett. LC being light crimson and LG being light green. If this were so, the tartan would be much the same as the usual Spens tartan and similar in many respects to the Perthshire District sett.
The source of tartan 1681 was: National Museums of Scotland
