A traditional Welsh Shoulder Shawl in a pale combition of terra and cream with highlights of powdery blue, lavender, silver and red.
Part of Welsh costume The 'siol bach' (small shawl) is also known as a
shoulder shawl . In the past it would have been folded into a triangle and pinned with a thorn. Worn by both men and women
Very early shawls were in plain colours with fine over check but towards the end of the 19th century checks became more common.
Made from very fine wool it is very rare to find one in perfect condition - this one has a slightly untidy fringe and a very faint mark
A lovely token of Welsh Heritage
