Santes Dwynwen, St Dwynwen's Day is Wales' St Valentine’s Day, celebrated on 25th January and is the most romantic day in the Welsh calendar year. It is celebrated with the giving and receiving of cards and presents and by saying "I Love you" in Welsh, "Rwy'n dy garu di". Show your proud Welsh heritage and point of difference by celebrating St Dwynwen's Day as opposed to Valentines Day!!
In the Welsh village of Cwm Gwaun (the Gwaun valley), near Fishguard, Pembrokeshire in Wales, locals are keeping old traditions alive by celebrating the New Year, known as Hen Galan, 13 days after everyone else. Back in the 1700s, the people of Cwm Gwaun used the Julian calendar and still do. New Years Eve is on 13th January!!!
Nobody loves natural fibres more than we do. Cotton, silk, cashmere, mohair and of course wool. We love them because they are less damaging to the environment, they are natural sustainable products, their breathable qualities make them soft and airy against the skin. It is therefore unfortunate that moths also like natural fibres and we need to control and eliminate them, preferably in a natural way!!!
