Dacre (Estate Check)
  • Notes: One of many framed samples from St Andrews Woollen Mill acquired by Jim McAslan. They used to line a corridor in the shop which overlooked the 18th hole at the Old Course in St. Andrews. Count taken from woven sample. E S Harrison in his 1968 book "Our Scottish District Checks" states: The Dacre is just the Coigach magnified by two and is quite one of the boldest of our checks. Although we have been making this check for almost a hundred years, I have not been able to find any history of its origin."
