The Cilmeri blanket is woven in Welsh Mule sourced from a local smallholding in Ceredigion, Wales. This fleece is from the 2019 shearing which was mostly cream in colour. We wanted to celebrate the beautiful Welsh mule fleece and not overwhelm it with too much colour and pattern. We chose to weave in a corded rib design to give texture to the blanket with a simple broken single strand stripe in Jacob natural grey. Finished with a blanket stitch.
There are only twenty-one of the Cilmeri blanket each one comes with a provenance book explaining the process and confirming its exclusivity as one of twenty one. A rare and beautiful blanket in today's mass produced market.
The whole process was completed by hand using traditional methods at one mill – fleece to blanket a Welsh product.
