This is a study of tartans, with emphasis on the tartan sett and the technique of weaving it rather than on its adaptation to specific uses.
The sett and weaving of Tartans e-book teaches you how to weave tartans, it also has instructions for making items from the tartan you wove like kilted skirts and scarves.
The sett and weaving of Tartans was written by Mary E. Black, OTR, a well-known weaving authority. She was the Director of The Handcrafts Division of the Department of Trade and Industry for the Province of Nova Scotia, Canada.
The book was originally published by The Lily Mills Company which sold thread, weaving supplies and looms. There is no publication date but it seems to be from the 1940's or 1950's.
The book has 47 pages with color illustrations and a bibliography.
It is set up sequentially to teach you how to weave tartan from simple to complex patterns.
Once you learn the basics of tartan weaving from the e-book, it will enable you to apply what you have learned to weaving any tartan you wish, whether a standard tartan. an obscure or unavailable tartan, or a tartan you design for yourself.
