Vintage fringed Welsh blanket. Plaid - pinks, blues, yellow, with 2 repairs
Vintage Welsh wool fringed blanket / bedcover (these types of blanket is called a 'carthen'). In a pretty plaid mix of pinks, blues and yellow. It has retained its original lable - it was produced by Cwmgwili Mill in Carmarthenshire in the 1950s.
There is one area of darning (around the size of 50p) and a repair to a small area of blanket stitch. (See photos). The price reflects this.
The darned area is close to a corner and would not be immediately noticeable - the remainder of the blanket is in very good condition. The fringes are in very good condition. We have laundered it prior to putting it up for sale.
This is a lovely cosy blanket that would look great as a throw or a bedcover (double bed).
The price includes UK P&P
