Our traditional welsh blankets are hand woven in Wales in limited numbers. They are designed and woven using traditional looms, some of which are over 100 years old. Some blankets and throws are woven on Dobcross 90 inch (2.3 metre) wide looms and others on narrower looms. None of our Welsh blankets for sale are mass produced.
Welsh Tapestry Blankets - Hiraeth Collection
Our Welsh tapestry blankets are part of the ‘Hiraeth’ Collection and nothing says Hiraeth more than an iconic Welsh tapestry blanket, baby blanket, throw or cushion. Hiraeth is a Welsh concept of longing for home, which can be loosely translated as 'nostalgia', or, more commonly, 'homesickness'. Many claim 'hiraeth' is a word which cannot be translated, meaning more than solely "missing something" or "missing home."
Treftadaeth - Heritage Blenkets
Our Treftadaeth Collection is a celebration of Welsh heritage, in remembrance of an event or maybe a person that shaped the Country we have become. It also celebrates the Welsh woollen industry and weaving history.
This Collection will include Welsh woollen blankets and throws that are woven using fleece sourced within Wales. FelinFach buys the whole clip from the smallholding and the process from this fleece to our blanket or throw is completed in Wales - each blanket or throw will have a provenance proving it is a genuine Welsh product from ‘fleece to throw’. Each product will be individually numbered together with its ‘vintage’, the year the sheep were clipped. The blankets will be in the natural colour of the fibre and on occasion we may add a small amount of colour to the design.
Our beautiful, soft and cosy traditional Welsh blankets are hand woven from 100% new wool. All our blankets are made from British wool and are not vintage or used or second-hand blankets.
