At the end of weaving, and only if there is enough wool left over, this wool is periodically recycled into throws. It is the same NEW wool, woven in the same way but the colourways and patterns are dictated by what wool is left over and no particular pattern. This 'last chance' range are real bargains - one offs never to be repeated.

If asked when the last invasion of Britain was, many people in Britain will remember 1066 when the Normans successfully invaded the south coast and became the rulers of Britain for centuries.
But that is simply not true…
Wales is famous for its Welsh wool industry and its blankets and throws and in particular, the iconic Welsh tapestry blankets from its early history to modern times. They are showcased in the National Wool Museum of Wales in the Teifi Valley. The museum is a National Heritage Site.
All of our Welsh blankets and throws are traditionally woven in limited numbers by men and women with personal care and attention - they are not mass-produced. They are woven in a handful of local mills using age old looms with traditional skills and processes of yesteryear.
Our hand dyed yarn is a 100% natural fibre including wool, alpaca, mohair, goat, linen and silk. It is sustainable, renewable and biodegradeable and fully complies with our Sustainability Policy. We support the worldwide Campaign for Wool and by buying locally, we support our sheep farmers
