The Story of an Old Welsh Antique Tapestry Blanket

This stunning old Welsh blanket is a wonderful example of an Antique Tapestry or Double Cloth

Watch Athene English, owner of The Great English Outdoors tell the story of this blanket

 

Woven on both sides theses blankets are reversible therefore known as double cloths, made by weaving two layers of cloth together – you get two blankets for the price of one

These old Antique Tapestries were traditionally given as Wedding Presents

This beautiful old Welsh Antique Tapestry is for sale

Antique Tapestry AT125 is a lovely early example of a Welsh woollen tapestry woven in this distinctive geometric design in shades of crimson pink, primrose yellow, baby blue and cream

Woven at Trefiw Mill

The blankets are washed in a natural wool wash and treated with our own anti moth and wool tonic, restored when necessary, and only then offered for sale
