"Pwdin Dolig" Festive Blanket
7 November, 2018
Christmas has come early for fans of Llaeth Y Llan and Melin Tregwynt.
Llaeth y Llan launch a limited edition Christmas Pudding Yogurt alongside a bespoke Melin Tregwynt traditional blanket and pillow set ahead of Christmas preparations.
With Christmas firmly on the horizon, North Wales yogurt manufacturer Llaeth Y Llan/Village Dairy are introducing their first ever limited-edition seasonal flavour to enhance customer choice and create excitement around the brand during the festive period. The seasonal line is Christmas Pudding /‘Pwdin ‘Dolig’ available in ASDA and independent stores throughout Wales already and other major retailers end of November.
Llaeth y Llan Christmas Pudding packaging took inspiration from traditional Welsh blanket pattern ‘Caernarfon’ widely used in the Welsh Woollen Mill industry. The company have applied contemporary adaptions and added a unique brown and red colour scheme to represent the season and flavour. The limited edition flavour sits alongside the core range of Llaeth y Llan yogurt which have their own patterns.
To coincide with the yogurt on sale in stores throughout Wales, the design on the pots has been commissioned into a highly collectable limited run of Welsh blankets and pillows woven here at Melin Tregwynt. Each blanket and pillow has been finished by hand, and each piece includes a label detailing the collaboration between the two brands. The intention is that the throws and pillows are sold as sets, the rare sets will be sold over ten locations throughout Wales. In addition to the exclusive stockist list, Llaeth Y Llan will be selling them at the Dairy, the Conwy Feast and the Royal Welsh Winter Fair. All profits from Llaeth Y Llan’s sales will be going to the Welsh Air Ambulance Charity.
The Roberts family are passionate about making high quality dairy products, and believe Melin Tregwynt was the perfect partner in order to create high quality bespoke blanket sets that fans of both companies can enjoy and keep.
The family are big fans of Welsh blankets, and that’s why our branding is influenced by them, but for our first limited edition flavour we thought the occasion deserves something really special. Working with Melin Tregwynt has been amazing seeing the process from start to finish, it’s really given us a greater appreciation of the time and skill involved in creating Welsh blankets
