FelinFach's guiding principles for its products and processes are the three words natural, traditional and handmade. Our Welsh blankets and throws are woven on traditional looms using the skills and methods of the last 100 years and these looms produce handmade blankets in limited numbers. We use only natural dyes in our all our hand dyed products, be they yarn, cotton, silk and wool scarves. We also make hand bound books and we resell the most gorgeous, vegan friendly handmade soap, made in north Wales - a beautiful way to get any dye of your hands!

We are an official supporter of the Campaign for Wool, an organisation established to promote the sustainable use of UK wool. FelinFach is also a member of Make it in Britain.
