    Kilt weight 16 oz 18 oz

    Hello,

    I have an ex Hire Kilt acquired is to be made of wool and 16 oz 8Yard fabric.
    In kilt itself is no sign of the origin or the material.

    My question: What is the weight at the Kilt: Waist 40",Length 25", 8 Yard, 16oz?

    Seller not responding to demand, but provides the kilt as wool 16oz 8 Yard at.
    I have my doubts.

    Perhaps the experts can help me here.

    An 8 yd., 16 oz. kilt should weigh at least 4 lbs.

    Not sure what you mean by the title of your post. I think you can pretty much guarantee that, if it is an ex-hire kilt, it won't be 18 oz (i.e., won't be regimental weight).

    Also - not clear whether you actually have bought the kilt and are not getting answers from the seller or you are thinking of buying it and not getting answers from the seller.

    Not disputing, just curious - how do we determine the weight of a fabric? Is there a mathematical formula?

    So, I have exactly two Kilt bought after I read somewhere here in the forum can be used when making quite good at Ex Hire a start with good kilt.

    Kilt 1 of this
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/401172501930

    Kilt 2 is this
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/401171783686

    Today I received this and am not convinced of the material.

    After the response of CCK I've looked at the package and both kilt together weigh <> 2.5 Kg!

    So can not come with 16oz wool kilt or?

    Since I have found several damages that can be repaired by a Kiltnäher course I want arguments have to ask the seller for withdrawal or replacement.

    Many thanks for the help.

    Thank you Barb. How the forum is asked the question does matter
    The discussion ones are interesting, but I think I can use the 'math' one to work out the weights of a few smaller samples I have.

    Thank you, I am sorry to all my Translate G ..... and so it perhaps comes across something wrong.
    But that's helpful.

    Please post a photo of the tartan. Many of the tartans can be identified by weaver/weight on sight. That's easier (if it's not something ubiquitous like Royal Stewart, etc.) than doing the math.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately my posts must be enabled, and that takes time.
    The link can be handen at my post for Barb.
