FelinFach Natural Textiles
FelinFach Natural Textiles is an independent Welsh company based at a 200 year old former flour mill in the Preseli mountain area of Pembrokeshire, Wales. FelinFach Natural Textiles design and make handmade cushions, throws, bedding and hand-dyed yarns with natural botanical plant based colours and extracts. We also design traditionally woven Welsh blankets which are traditionally woven for us in local mills. We use the fabrics from these local mills to make our handmade Welsh wool crafts. We use wherever possible, wool from quality rare-breed sheep.
For many years, we have used a room in our house (the big mill) for sewing but when we outgrew the room, we moved to a renovated studio building in the garden. We had spent ages thinking of a name for the business without anything making sense. Then inspiration – we had always called the studio building in the garden, the little mill and FelinFach means “little mill” in Welsh and from then on the business name became FelinFach. The logo came from the two capital letter F’s in our name, toppled over to form mountain peaks, symbolising the Preseli mountains where we live and work. And because there’s only one of us and a few helpers, our products are created in limited numbers with personal care and attention. No two products will ever be exactly the same even if they have the same design, because they are handmade at FelinFach Natural Textiles! But we see that as part of the beauty of an individually handmade product. Traditionally woven Welsh wool blankets, tapestry blankets, baby blankets, throws and, scarves. Hand dyed yarn with natural plant based dyes. Handmade books, note books and diaries and other gifts are all available to order at FelinFach Natural Textiles.
