History of old Welsh Blankets

For centuries weaving has carried on in Wales and relied on an economy based on sheep farming

Many of the mills were small, single-family operations which used wool drawn from the immediate locality

These blankets are old textiles and individually sized

They generally fit a small double bed but look great at the end of a larger Queen size or King size bed, on top of a white duvet cover or used as a sofa throw

Approx size 235 cm x  235 cm, an unusually large size
