Introduction Textiles - as essential a part of our lives as shelter and food. Keeping us warm (or cool) from birth to death, decorating our homes, whether a tent or a palace, draping on our bodies, produced with thrift or providing an outlet for complex creativity. At Llynfi, our main activity is designing and making clothing with fine natural fibres and fabrics - items that have style and longevity. We hope you will enjoy following our thoughts, observations and developments along the way.
Interests Textiles, Angora Bunnies, Social History, plants and gardening, the World around us, textile history, natural dyes.
