Wales is famous for its Welsh wool industry and its blankets and throws and in particular, the iconic Welsh tapestry blankets from its early history to modern times. They are showcased in the National Wool Museum of Wales in the Teifi Valley. The museum is a National Heritage Site.
All of our Welsh blankets and throws are traditionally woven in limited numbers by men and women with personal care and attention - they are not mass-produced. They are woven in a handful of local mills using age old looms with traditional skills and processes of yesteryear.
Our Welsh tapestry range is named ‘Hiraeth’ and maybe nothing says Hiraeth more than an iconic Welsh tapestry blanket. A stunning addition to any home, traditional or contemporary. They are great for a cwtch - everybody can cuddle but only the Welsh know how to cwtch :)
