    • Legends of the Loom

      Welsh folklore holds that if you spend the night on Cader Idris, a peak in the Snowdonia range, you’ll wake either crazy or a poet. Myths, music, and poetry are the food of life in this land of castles, lush valleys, rivers, and stark mountains. It’s no wonder these matchless blankets—steeped in tradition but so startlingly modern—come from Wales.

      Legends of the Loom
      • Labor of Love

        Once upon a time Wales had hundreds of small mills producing wool blankets and carthenni—the double-sided bedcovers—each known for its unique patterns and colors. Now only a handful of mills remain. Couple that with years in which the blankets fell from fashion and you’ll know why vintage and antique examples are so highly prized. Prince Charles, for one, is a collector.

          Not only are carthenni reversible—they’re made with double-ply yarn, creating distinct patterns on each side—but they’re so strong they’ve been known to double as rugs. No one would suggest that today, but their durability adds immeasurably to their allure. Drape one of these works of art across the arm of a modern sofa or fold it at the foot of a bed and instantly dress up the room. It’ll survive children and dogs and never lose its magic.
