Traditional Welsh shoulder shawl in lavender and pink , pressed as if it had just been made. Came from a family in Rhydlewis , both parents and grandparents had worked in the mills in Pentrecwrt and Drefach Felindre so it could have come from either. The family had a number of shawls but non as prisitine condition as this so maybe this one was kept in the drawer for best. Originally worn over the shoulder by both men and women and fastened with a pin or simply a thorn taken from the hedgrow , they were an essential part of everyday dress .
Judging by its pattern we beleive it was designed to be worn as an oblong shawl. A lovely piece of Welsh heritage
