As you know Cefyn has been really busy over the last few weeks weaving a brand new range of Welsh blankets BUT he has also been busy re-colouring the ever popular Cefyn Burgess “Clapper board” tapestry blanket design as well.
On Monday Cefyn was in the mill doing the actual colour sampling which involved him weaving sections of the Welsh tapestry blankets to see how his 5 new colour combinations would work together.
When I asked Cefyn how the day went he said “Their lovely; I’m really excited about these new colours. In fact they work so well together we have started the weaving now!”
The new colours are:
- Gold and Sandalwood
- Slate blue fleck and Ultra marine blue
- Red fleck and Gold
- Olive green and Sandalwood
- Egg shell blue and Sandalwood
This mean that the 5 new colours for the “Clapper board” Welsh tapestry blankets will be in Cefyn’s shop in June and will be priced around £200.
Sitting down with Cefyn last night to look at the photos of the weaving I asked him what you would use a Welsh tapestry blanket for? “They are perfect for everyday use such bedding or as a throw and as we get into summer they would make a fantastic picnic blanket”.
To add my own suggestions I think a Cefyn Burgess Welsh tapestry blanket would make an original and unique wedding present and the start of a new family heirloom.
