History Of Melin Teifi

Raymond Jones and wife Diane, the owners of Melin Teifi, served their apprenticeship in Cambrian Mills (Now the Museum of the Welsh Woollen Industry) and worked here for a period of 18 years. But events too a dramatic turn in 1982 following the closure of Cambrian Mills Felindre Ltd. Rather than seek employment in another industry, Raymond and Diane Jones decided to establish Melin Teifi, A woollen mill employing three people, in a workshop on the small industrial estate in Henllan, situated on the north bank of the Teifi about a mile from the museum.

Melin Teifi took up accommodation in the museum in 1984 and the Mill, although an independent commercial venture, is an integral part of the museum's interpretive exhibition, Melin Teifi concentrates upon the production of flannel, tweed, blanket, quilts, shawls, also commissions, Welsh costumes, flannel shirts, smocks etc.
