Knot Garden Welsh Throw in Silver

Knot Garden is an intricate, reversible weave originally created in the 1950's and is part of Melin Tregwynt's design archive. 

Each throw is finished with a simple hem on all four sides so you can choose to display either side. Light warm and easy to care for, it is made from 100% lambswool.

Welsh double weave patterns or "tapestries" are an iconic Welsh design.  While the doublecloth structure is no longer exclusive to Wales, each Welsh mill developed their own patterns, which identified where the blanket was from.   

The tradition of weaving in Wales goes right back to the Middle Ages.  The country's hills and lowland pastures make for great sheep country and fast running streams provided the power needed in the pre-industrial age. The industry declined greatly after World War I, with only a few mills surviving.  Melin Tregwynt, which sits along the Pembrokeshire coast in West Wales, is one of them.
