Discover the spellbinding story of the Welsh woollen industry - The National Wool Museum
Industrial Action: 23 - 24 August
The National Wool Museum will be closed from 1pm - 5pm on Saturday 23 & Sunday 24 August due to industrial action.
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'.
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.
Located in the historic former Cambrian Mills, the National Wool Museum is a special place with a spellbinding story to tell. Re-opened in 2004 following major re-development, this flagship museum is a new and exciting place to visit with something for everyone to enjoy.
A raised walkway gives a unique view of textiles in production at Melin Teifi, the site's commercial woollen mill, while the Textile Gallery displays aspects of the National Flat Textile Collection for the first time.
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.
