National Wool Museum

The story of one of Wales's most historically important and widespread industries.

 National Museum Wales

Dre-fach Felindre in the Teifi valley was once the centre of a thriving woollen industry, earning the nickname 'The Huddersfield of Wales'.

Shirts and shawls, blankets and bedcovers, woollen stockings and socks were all made in the village, now home of the museum which occupies the former Cambrian Mills.

Displays chart the journey of wool production 'from fleece to fabric', while visitors can also try their hand at carding, spinning and sewing, as well as explore items from the National Flat Textile Collection.
