The nursing shawls were originally used to ‘cwtch’ or carry a baby

The shawl which was square in shape and usually fringed with hand twisted tassels, was folded into a triangle and draped over the shoulders and around the baby, the right side was then taken under the arm and brought up around the baby, keeping the child safely in place and leaving the mother’s hands free to work

These nursing shawls are becoming increasingly rare to find

These shawls are old textiles and individually sized

Approx size 178 cm x 178 cm
