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. Each pattern has a history behind it. We have chosen three different patterns to bring in that we feel have powerful meanings.
One of the most iconic Welsh patterns. While this particular version of the Knot Garden was designed during the 1950s by the Welsh rural industries board, it is a combination and variation of many 18th and 19th century patterns including the Lover's Knot and the Welsh Chain. These patterns were meant to symbolize the intertwining of human relationships, kept strong through their bonds.
