Visit to Melin Tregwynt

24/02/19

Whilst on a trip around wales I visited the small white washed woollen mill, Melin Tregwent. Located in the remote wooded valley on the Pembrokeshire coast. The mill has been on the same site since the 17th Century and has been owned by the same family since 1912.

The Mill makes beautiful  blankets, throws and cushions,  upholstery, clothing, accessories and bags. All in beautiful doublecloth weave, a woven textile in which two or more sets of warps and one or more sets of weft or filling yarns are interconnected to form a two-layered cloth, a process of weaving I am very familiar with and love to produce myself!

A look round the Mill:

Melin Tregwynt specialise in doublecloth and most of their fabrics have ‘strong graphic designs with a retro, mid-century modern quality.’

It’s always so lovely to get the chance to look round small Mills that continue to produce stunning pieces of work, in a traditional way. Melin Tregwynt has been an inspiration for me since the first time I set about weaving double cloth.
