If you happen to be in Wales and near Newcastle Emlyn I recommend a visit to the National Wool Museum. You can exploring the history of spinning and weaving in Wales. We were lucky to be able to join a guided tour and see the weaving welsh wool blankets.
We also got to see the spinning machines in action.
My favourite part of the museum was the gallery of items made from Welsh wool, especially the sample books and this wonderful display of different patterns and colours.
