Discover the spellbinding story of the Welsh woollen industry

Wool was historically the most important and widespread of Wales's industries. The picturesque village of Dre-fach Felindre in the beautiful Teifi valley was once the centre of a thriving woollen industry, earning the nickname 'The Huddersfield of Wales'.

Located in the historic former Cambrian Mills, shirts and shawls, blankets and bedcovers, woollen stockings and socks were all made here, and sold in the surrounding countryside - and to the rest of the world.

Follow the process from Fleece to Fabric and visit the sympathetically restored listed mill buildings and Historic Machinery

The Weaving Shed is currently undergoing renovation and conservation work with our craftspeople undergoing training on using the historic looms housed in the building. We hope to reopen the raised walkway in the near future to give a unique view of textiles in production in the weaving shed.

Families can have fun following the specially designed trail, 'A Woolly Tale', and create their own guide to making and using woollen cloth, trying their hand at carding, spinning and sewing along the way.

The Museum's friendly staff are always on hand to give demonstrations and answer questions.
