Treftadaeth - Heritage Collection

Our Treftadaeth Collection is a celebration of Welsh heritage, either in remembrance of an event or a person that shaped the Country we have become. It also celebrates Wales’ woollen industry and weaving history.

This Collection will include Welsh wool 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. Click to Welsh Wool.

Senedd - Welsh tapestry blankets, throws and cushions

Our Welsh tapestry blanket named Senedd (Parliament) is also part of this Heritage range. Following devolution in 1997, certain powers were devolved to the Senedd in Cardiff Bay. This is so much a major event in the history of Wales, that we have included it in this Heritage range.

Patagonia (Gwladfa) - Alpaca rare breed wool

Our first throw is called Patagonia (Gwladfa) to commemorate the emigration  of many Welsh communities on the ship Mimosa to Patagonia in 1865. In 2015, the 150th anniversary of the migration of Welsh settlers to Patagonia was marked with events in Argentina and Wales.

Subsequent throws are named Tryweryn and Cilmeri. Tryweryn is in remembrance of the flooding of a valley near Bala to supply water to Liverpool and Cilmeri to commemorate Llywelyn ap Gruffudd (1223-1282) - the last prince of an independent Wales.

Our Cilmeri blanket is starting its journey from fleece to blanket with the 2018 Welsh Mule fleece and is expected to complete as a blanket in Autumn 2019.  

Tryweryn - Rare breed Welsh Black and Ryeland 

Tryweryn is in remembrance of the flooding of a valley near Bala to supply water to Liverpool.
