In our searches around the world, we have come across what we believe to be a practically perfect throw blanket. Handwoven at Melin Tregwynt, on the southwestern coast of Wales, these wool throws have been refined over generations of weavers and makers. Made of 100% wool, these stunning double-cloth weaves are filled with love, warmth, and meaning. As two layers of fabric are woven at the same time, points of interchanging threads create a reversible pattern, binding the layers together in a way that presents detailed woven patterns.
This particular pattern is a tribute to the Welsh culture; here with the Welsh ladies pattern illustrating the "super women" of Wales. This red colorway is inspired by our local heroine Jemima Nicholas who is said to have tricked French invaders into surrender. Indeed, in 1797 for the last attempted invasion, she told local women to dress in traditional red Welsh costumes to look like British soldiers. Armed with only a pitchfork, she single-handedly rounded up a dozen French troops who came ashore at Fishguard.
