FelinFach is pleased to join the Americymru network (Click here to visit) which is a great website for the Welsh, ex pats and persons of Welsh descent in the 'America's' and elsewhere and gives a Croeso/Welcome to the Welsh 'daiaspora' :)
Natural Traditional Handmade - The beauty and uniqueness of handmade wool products - traditionally hand woven Welsh blankets and throws, the iconic Welsh tapestry blankets, scarves and hand dyed yarn with natural dyes
Americymru seeks to provide a social network for the Welsh, persons of Welsh descent and Cymruphiles all over the world .The network is a place where members can share their experiences of Wales and engage in friendly debate in our forums. The network has many features which allow people with a shared love of Wales to communicate and share photos, videos, links, blogposts etc and we will be adding new features from time to time. It also extend a warm welcome to our cousins from other Celtic nations.
Secondly Americymru seeks to promote Wales as well as the Welsh-American community and other communities of the Welsh 'diaspora' in Wales. It has no political agenda in so doing but merely a desire to help familiarise it's members and readers with the best of traditional and modern Welsh literature, music and culture. For this reason it encourages the use of the site as a 'shop-window' in most instances.
Our company, FelinFach Natural Textiles is located in the heart of the Preseli area of Pembrokeshire near to Boncath. We design Welsh blankets and the iconic Welsh Tapestry blankets 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 also offer Sheepskin Rugs, Gift Cards and tools and books for crafters and knitters - Cocoknits, Laine, Amirisu and Making to name a few!. We are a proud supporter of the Campaign for Wool and Global Welsh.

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!!!

Offas Dyke is a 177 mile (285 kilometre) footpath that was officially opened on 10th July 1971. It is one of Britain's National Trails and is also Britain’s longest ancient monument. In the 8th century, King Offa of Mercia erected this wide border rampart to separate Wales and England. Much later, in 1971 Offa's Dyke path was placed alongside it, from Chepstow in South Wales to Prestatyn in the North.
