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

Owain Glyndwr Day, 16th September, commemorates the last native Welsh person to hold the title Prince of Wales. He is now a figure of mass culture in Wales, with statues and monuments alongside pub and street names remembering him…Owain Glyndwr, 1350 - 1416 was in the opinion of many, one of the greatest Welshmen of all time if not the greatest.
