Welsh Wool Blankets

 

Old Welsh Blanket, Narrow Loom NL50

These examples of old Welsh narrow loom blankets were woven in two strips on a narrow loom and then hand stitched together down the centre 

Usually heavier in weight and often woven in soft, earthen colours, characteristic of authentic vegetable dyes, the narrow loom blankets pre date 1910 and the introduction of the wide loom

A superb example of a Welsh wool narrow loom blanket woven in a plaid design with a dove grey ground with mulberry and charcoal grey overcheck

Double hand knotted fringing on two sides

This is a one off item

186 cm x  217 cm

These are old textiles and we carefully check the condition of each blanket. 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
