Our Welsh tapestry blankets are part of the ‘Hiraeth’ Collection and nothing says Hiraeth more than an iconic Welsh tapestry blanket, baby blanket, throw or cushion. Hiraeth is a Welsh concept of longing for home, which can be loosely translated as 'nostalgia', or, more commonly, 'homesickness'. Many claim 'hiraeth' is a word which cannot be translated, meaning more than solely "missing something" or "missing home."
A stunning addition to any home, traditional or contemporary. Using pure new wool on a 1930's Dobcross loom, each step to produce the tapestry is by hand using the skills and processes of yesteryear. There can be between 1700 to 2500 individual warp threads that are tied on to the heddles of the loom by hand. The ‘double weave’ design produces reversible blankets that are practical, hard-wearing and genuinely warm. Our range of tapestry cushions complement each of these beautiful Welsh tapestry blankets.
All our Welsh tapestry blankets and throws are made from new wool and are not vintage, used or second hand blankets. Our sizes are a generous true to size - if it says a single, double or king then that is the bed it will fit from the head of the bed to the foot and it will drape at the sides.
