1 item in stock

Beautiful Welsh nursing shawl in pale chocolate and cream with fine stripes of pale blue and yellow

Lovely soft feel, perfect to wear , drape or snuggle up in on chillier evenings .

Excellent condition , with a few well executed darns .

The big shawl has been in demand for centuries in the steep sided valleys of Wales, as a very practical way of carrying a baby, keeping mother warm and leaving both hands free. Perambulators are not a practical proposition in such hilly areas and the siol magi has for centuries provided a solution to many of the problems of valley mothers (taken from The Textiles of Wales by Ann Sutton)
