Finding the Perfect Welsh Blanket for You
WHY CHOOSE WELSH BLANKETS?
When it comes to finding the perfect blanket, you rarely need to look any further than Welsh blankets. In fact, blanket making is a long-standing tradition throughout Wales. As such, the quality and cosiness of Welsh blankets is second-to-none.
There are several factors accounting for the quality of Welsh blankets. For example, making blankets by hand generally results in better quality than mass-produced varieties. Moreover, Welsh blankets are traditionally made with wool, which is arguably one of the best materials for making blankets.
This is because wool produces thick blankets that are better at trapping heat than those made from other materials, such as cotton. Furthermore, synthetic materials often cause adverse reactions when they come into contact with skin, whereas wool rarely presents this issue, making it perfect for those with allergies or sensitive skin.
THE HISTORY OF WELSH BLANKETS
Welsh blankets are produced using sheep’s wool and are woven on looms, weaving wool has been a long standing tradition at the heart of many communities. Being perfectly placed with a large supply of wool and traditional water sources to power the looms both readily available, Wales was an ideal landscape for weaving to flourish. If you get the chance to visit us in the pink chapel showroom in Penderyn, you may spot our very own hand loom in pride of place alongside our selection of beautiful blankets!
FINDING YOUR STYLE
When selecting the perfect Welsh blanket, you will probably want something matching your current interior style (although we personally love incorporating eclectic décor into interiors). You may wish to consider whether you wish to include the blanket to work in harmony with the existing colour scheme in your room, or to use the blanket to provide a colour accent to set off your interior to its best advantage.
It can also be fun to incorporate patterned blankets into your décor, also potentially enabling you to draw on multiple colours in your home décor. If you are looking to include a blanket into a more neutral colour scheme, tartan patterns can add flair to an interior while still remaining in keeping with its surroundings.
Fortunately, we offer a broad range of Welsh blankets at Penderyn Antiques, suitable for a variety of colour palettes and styles preferences.
