King sized Welsh tapestry blankets back in stock - smaller sizes available from Throw, Single and Double and also Children/Baby blankets.
Our Welsh tapestry Collection is named ‘Hiraeth’ 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."
Our tapestry blankets and throws are made from new wool and are not vintage, used or second hand blankets. Our sizes are a generous true to size - if it says a single, double or king then that is the bed it will fit from foot to head and draped at the side.
Our company, FelinFach Natural Textiles is located in the heart of the Preseli area of Pembrokeshire near to Boncath. We design Welsh blankets, Welsh woollen blankets and throws which are traditionally woven at Welsh mills. We also design and make natural hand dyed yarn, cotton, silk and wool scarves and other handmade products. We are a proud supporter of the Campaign for Wool, Global Welsh and Wales International.

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!!!
Collection of the current top twenty Best Sellers in the FelinFach shop. Out of stock items are excluded from this Collection
