National Wool Museum
Dre-fach Felindre, Nr Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthenshire
Let the story of wool, once the most important industry in Wales, weave its magic in this unique working museum in the Teifi Valley. Admission is free.
It all starts with a sheep, but look where it finishes.
In this gem of a museum housed in the former Cambrian Mills you can explore the mighty industry that produced clothing, shawls and blankets for the workers of Wales and the rest of the world. We have working textile machinery, traditional tools and craftspeople to guide you through the whole process.
Warp & Weft
Carding, spinning, willowing. Pim winder and Dobcross loom. By the end of your visit, they'll be more than mere words. And if you want to see the end result of all this hard work, take a tour of our Textile Gallery. The Wall of Blankets is not to be missed.
We're also home to a commercial working mill, Melin Teifi, one of the last makers of flannel in Wales. The tour by raised walkway gives a unique view.
