These pins are primarily decorative pins and should not be used to hold or fasten anything other than a light weight sash. They are a good size and weight to wear on a sash, lapel, shoulder or hat. They also make excellent centerpieces for a lady's rosette.
As a special order all pins are also available in gold plate.Northern Warship
As always, all of our pins are made by us (at our workshop in northern California) and all of our pins are covered by our lifetime guarantee: If you break or damage one of our pins, we will fix it or replace it.
For heavy garments --such as shawls, capes, drapes, plaids and blankets-- we suggest a larger "9 Yard Pin." If you are interested in a larger Scottish shoulder brooch please see our Kilt Pins.
P.s. We are always designing new sash pins and remaking old designs. Currently (as of the Winter of 2014) we make over 90 different sash pin designs which we only display at a few Scottish Games each year. So....if you see something you like at a Games, please be aware that it may be several years before the same design is back on our casting schedule again. (In much the same way that some of the smaller woolen mills weave the majority of their plaids on a rotation basis, we cast the majority of our designs on a rotation basis. We may make a only five or six examples of a given design only once every 3-4 years.) However, all of the Scottish pins shown on-line are always in stock.
