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 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. Each pattern has a history behind it. We have chosen three different patterns to bring in that we feel have powerful meanings.
St. Davids Cross:
Named after the patron saint of Wales; St. David’s Cross. This pattern is not as complex in its execution but truly beautiful in simplicity. This pattern was inspired by the Shaker weaves of the 18th century. The Shakers left England to pursue religious freedom in America and were known for the pursuit of simplicity in the items they had in their home.
