Details

Mae’n bwrw glaw allan,
Mae’n hindda’n y ty.
Mae merched Tregaron
Yn nyddu gwlan du.

(Outside it’s raining, inside it’s fair. The girls of Tregaron, spin black wool to wear.)

This is a well-known Welsh nursery rhyme, known throughout Wales. It refers to a time when Tregaron was a thriving market town and the people knitted woollen stockings to supplement their income. The stockings were sold in the markets of the South Wales valleys where coal mining was a booming industry. Those knitted from black wool were very popular (for obvious reasons!) and typical of Tregaron.
