Grant of Achnarrow Error 1983
  • Notes: An setting error woven by Lochcarron on the instructions/count from Phil Smith. Great confusion surrounded all the Grant of Achnarrow entries with researchers misreading a difficult count, weavers perpetuating the errors. The correct sett now resides at #7865 with corrected data from Phil Smith. Copied by Phil Smith. Achnarrow is a farm near Cromdale. Woven by Lochcarron Weavers, Ross-shire, in 1983. STS records 'Acharrow' rather than 'Achnarrow'. In 2008 Phil Smith advised that this was an error when he misread his notes and Took 'R' to be 'K' for the tramlines on the white ground. However, it remains since Lochcarron did weave two bolts of this design and it is around and about in the USA. Sample in STA's Johnston Collection.
