Sanquhar Glove Patterns

2. What are Sanquhar Gloves?

Although the ‘Duke’ is the pattern most commonly associated with Sanquhar, there are many different patterns and variations. The first group of these are variations on the ‘Duke’ pattern, and are also based on the grid or ‘dambrod.’ There is a story or theory that the grid or dambrod pattern originated as a result of the local landowner, the Duke of Buccleuch, enclosing or fencing his land.
