This range of pure 100% British Wool flat woven runners was inspired by some of the many islands that surround the Pembrokeshire coastline. They are all located within the stunning Pembrokeshire National Park and they get their names from Scandinavian sailors, who used them as navigation markers.
In addition to farming, Caldey Island was a Benedictine Monastery from 1131 until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1535. After an absence of nearly 500 years the Benedictine Order returned to Caldey in 1906, and established a new monastery on the island.
Skomer, the largest island off Pembrokeshire, Skomer is one of the most important wildlife sites in North West Europe. It is very important because of its seabird colonies. It is the summer nesting site of puffins, Manx shearwater - which nest in old rabbit burrows, guillemots, razorbills (the National Park’s emblem), kittiwakes and gulls, which mostly nest on the cliffs. These birds fly south in winter to return to Skomer the next year, to breed.
Ramsey lies facing the St Davids peninsula across the rushing waters of Ramsey Sound, this is a scenically spectacular island and probably Pembrokeshire’s best site for watching grey seals and porpoises. Ramsey is a breeding stronghold for the chough, a rare member of the crow family. It’s also the only site in Pembrokeshire where lapwings are trying to breed. Corn is grown in the central fields to attract migrant seed-eating birds during the late summer and autumn. There is a large seabird cliff on the west side of the island, and gannets can be seen diving for fish offshore.
