Laxey Manx Blue (District)
  • Notes: Designed and woven by Robert Wood, the late owner of St George's Woollen Mill in Laxey after the weaving of the Manx National tartan was taken out of his hands by Miss Patricia McQuaid after a difference of opinion. This is now the only tartan woven by that mill. Notes from Bert McBainLee in May 2008 add "In the absence of the true 7-colour National tartan (#185) this is being sold as the 'Manx tartan' and used in souvenirs, caps, kilts etc." The mill is now owned and run by Robert's son John (Nov. 2008). 2014 - situation unchanged. Manx refers to the Isle of Man, a large (221 sq miles) island in the Irish Sea which is a self governing Crown dependency with a population of about 70,000. The inhabitants are of Celtic origin.
