Special vintage Welsh Tapestry Blanket - Meirion Mill

Regular price £260.00
This is a very special vintage, 100% wool double weave blanket. It was made by Meirion Mill and still has the original label (we have put a couple of stitches in to hold it firm). It dates to the 1940s/early 50's.

Meirion Mill was a North Wales woollen mill based at Dinas Mawddwy. it opened in 1946 and incorporated as the Wool Society in 1947 The enterprise was taken over by the Welsh agricultural society in 1952. The label indicates that this blanket was from the Wool Society period.

The blanket has a decorative wide border on all sides and short fringe. The couple that we purchased it from said they they were told that it may originally been given as a wedding blanket. This is certainly no run of the mill welsh tapestry. The colourway is an attractive dusty coral/pink shade with green and white. The border is very detailed. It is in really excellent condition throughout.

The price includes UK P&P. The blanket will be gently laundered by hand by us prior to dispatch.
