Old Welsh Blanket, Narrow Loom NL16

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 blankets pre date 1910 and the introduction of the wide loom

Cream ground with soft brown, dove grey, lemon yellow and lilac stripes with black, lemon yellow and violet stripes on two sides

This is a one off item

167 cm x 183 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
