A really beautiful example of a large Welsh Shawl.

Creamy Welsh wool bordered all round with a splendid twisted fringe .

The large shawls were more often nursing shawls but as this is a rather grand shawl we imagine it be a specially ordered item.

Welsh shawls are now very rare and there are not many surviving with out some form of damage or repair - they were a fine item of 'clothing' and as such  they were worn and washed much more than for instance a blanket  -this one has some small historic darns and a pale mark .
