A Dark Cloud over the Woollen Industry

A Dark Cloud over the Woollen Industry


This display explores the desperation of the woollen mills for contracts during WW1 to keep the mills open, and the use of Welsh national identity for recruitment. The Welsh Army Corps wanted to promote a Welsh national identity by clothing the new army in native homespun cloth – Brethyn Llwyd. However it was short-lived and never used for active service.
