Grwp agored i pobol sy'n credu mewn y Tylwyth Teg. An open group for people who believe in the Fair Family. Why so few tales? Why so little written about welsh fae?

Y Tylwyh Teg

The Fair Family of Wales also known as Bendith Y Mamau (the Mother’s Blessing), a euphemism used to avert kidnappings and other mischief. Their euphemistic name in Dyfed (Pembrokeshire) is Dynon Bach Teg, which means Little Fair Folk and their name is sometimes spelled Twlwwth Teg. They are also known as Gwarwyn a Throt (the white napped one with the trot), Jili Ffrwtan (a name for those Y Tylwyth Teg females who are proud and amorous), Sili Ffrt, Sili-go-Dust, and Trwtyn Tratyn. The Welsh name for Faeryland is Gwlad y Tylwyth Teg, and their king is Gwyn ap Nudd, the Celtic God of the Dead.

So let us have a revival of Y Tylwyth Teg, are the Cymru the only group not standing up in the World of the Fae? It is time to dig up our past, dust off the old books, dredge up what few paintings & illustrations we have and inspire a NEW WAVE OF CYMRU GWLAD Y TYLWYTH TEG.

The Old Fae Comment Wall

Comment by Jenny Brown on August 9, 2013 at 11:10pm Thought I would contribute a picture I made (very unskillfully but it's the best I can do... I don't know how to use the Painter program really...) of a wintery fae I met several years ago by accident (if you believe in those?).  For those who might care - He is about 7 ft tall if I were to guess but I'm not much for measurement.  Anyway I come up to about his mid chest and I'm 5'5".  No wings.  Definitely not the stereotypical wee folk or…
