A Dark Cloud over the Woollen Industry

Exploring the desperation of the woollen mills, needing the contracts during the War 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. It was short lived and never used for active service.
