The staple of every Welsh blanket chest in the C19th . Plain cream blankets woven on a flannel loom in two pieces & sewn together t create a larger bedcover. Sometimes sewn together in the mill , but often taken home to join. Hand sewn or machine sewn depending on your means & in this instance the seams have all been double machine sewn & trimmed with white cotton on the warp ends., satin on the selvedges & centre seam. Perhaps by a seamstress or house maid.
A lovely high twist blanket using a good quality yarn, hand spun & woven in a herringbone twill. Beautiful clean, unmarked condition. No raised nap unlike the Twentieth Century versions.
An authentic Welsh accent for a Victorian styled room.
