No one shears giant sheep quite like the Aussies - bonnets off to them.

You're kidding, right? The chamois are sewn together to form a 6 foot high x 12 foot wide Big Kilt. I'd like to see a monster sheep that big.

Re: Feileadh-mor Ulaidh A.D.1641-1653

A pattern for a modern Big Kilt. Remember, wool (plaid) and chamois (for the saffron one - I haven't found solid yellow wool fabric) shrink when washed and dried, whereas linen and cotton don't all that much (so use the shorter measurements). Your dressmaker needs a serger for the chamois one. Tip: ...

Re: Feileadh-mor Ulaidh A.D.1641-1653

Saffron coloured Ulster Big Kilt. The original kilt is obviously of Mediterranean origin. There are a score of synchronous behavior betwixt the Minoans and pre-Celtic Ireland. For example: 1) the oral history of the Stone of Scone, other crowning stones in Ireland, the Greek etymology of the proper ...
