Details

Roedd Dre-fach Felindre unwaith yn ganolfan diwydiant ffyniannus. Cafodd crysau a siolau, carthenni a cwrlidau, sannau a theits eu gwneud a'u gwerthu yn y marchnadoedd - yn darparu gweithwyr Cymru ac yn cael eu hallforio ar draws y byd. Mae'r Amgueddfa yn adrodd hanes diwydiant a oedd yn bwysig ar draws Cymru ac a gwasanaethau diwydiannau eraill y wlad. Mae mynediad i'r Amgueddfa am ddim ble mae cyfleusterau ymwelwyr gwych ynghyd â chaffi a siop, a hefyd ble mae'r Casgliad Tecstiliau Cenedlaethol yn cael ei gadw. Nid yn unig fod yr Amgueddfa yn adrodd hanes rhyfeddol y diwydiant gwlân yng Nghymru ond mae hefyd yn cefnogi cynhyrchu deunyddiau mewn patrymau traddodiadol Cymreig gan felin weithredol sydd ar waith yn yr Amgueddfa.

Dre-fach Felindre was once the centre of a thriving industry. Shirts and shawls, blankets and bedcovers, woollen stockings and socks, were made and sold in the surrounding markets, clothing the workers of Wales and exported around the world. The museum tells the story of an important industry across Wales and served the other industries of the country. It is free entry to the Museum that has excellent visitor facilities and a café and shop as well as holding the National Textile Collection. The Museum not only tells the fascinating story of the wool industry in Wales but also supports the production of fabrics in traditional Welsh patterns by a working mill, which can be seen in operation within the museum.
