We have always aimed to operate our business as sustainably as we can. In January 2021, we became carbon neutral with a net zero-carbon footprint! The fundamental part of almost all our products is wool and wool is one of the most sustainable products there is. Most of our products are handmade, and hence we have no carbon emissions from manufacturing or other similar high carbon emission activities.
All electricity consumed by FelinFach is now from 100% renewable energy, from UK windfarms - powered supplied by Scottish Power. Firstly, let's say it up front - no carbon emissions are better than buying carbon offsets to cover whatever emissions a company has. Going 100% renewable reduces our carbon emissions and also reduces our need to buy offsets.
Our carbon offsets purchased have supported forest protection initiatives, as follows;
FelinFach is too small to 'change the world', but we are making a contribution to that goal.
All the CO2 produced by these activities have been 100% offset, hence a carbon neutral company.
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 Welsh tartans, 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.
