Our Centenary...a busy summer...Part 1
11 August, 2013
This year Melin Tregwynt are celebrating 100 years of weaving, Our family business was founded in May 1912 when Henry Griffiths, my grandfather bought Tregwynt Mill for £760.
Earlier this year we were privileged to be invited to meet Prince Charles at his Highgrove home in March and since then we’ve had a number of events planned to celebrate this milestone year.
Rowan Tweed: earlier this year Rowan Yarns used the mill as a backdrop for one of their knitwear style books “Rowan Tweed”.

Melin Tregwynt 100th Birthday party: this took place at the Mill in Pembrokeshire on Saturday 16th, June 2012. We had a traditional ‘Twmpath’ dance with a hog roast & barbeque (invitation only) for staff (past & present) friends & supporters… Around 200 people attended and a great time was had by all
Special commissions: we have created exclusive ranges for Highgrove Enterprises, available in store now; and also for Heals and John Lewis to launch in September. All of these collections draw on our huge resource of design ideas developed over the last century.
