Antique narrow loom Welsh blanket

Regular price £150.00
Narrow loom blankets were made on smaller, non industrial, looms, often by small domestic makers. They consist of two narrow woven stripes joined with a centre seam. They usually date to the early part of the 20th century and earlier. They have become collectors pieces. This one has the typical muted colours. It has a rough fringe to two sides and is handstitched at the centre and hems. In excellent condition for its age. There are one or two really very tiny holes that we have not darned. A piece of Welsh history. This one is from the Swansea area. We have gently cleaned it so it is fresh. The price includes UK postage and packing.
