This listing is for one handwoven 'Silver Birch' Wool Altar Cloth from The heART of Ritual.


Made from natural (undyed) sheep wool that I gathered along the bramble covered hedgerows of West Cork in Ireland. Handspun and woven with love. I named this the Silver Birch Altar Cloth as the colours from this wool remind me of the beautiful colours found in Birch bark this time of year.



Personally, I rinse this altar cloth in room temperature water, and simply hang it over the wall mounted towel heater in the bathroom where it dries out quickly between uses. I have tested these by washing them on a wool wash in the washing machine at 30°c, and this works fine, but I recommend washing by hand (as above) with a neutral and natural soap as I feel all ritual items deserve special care. Please ensure it can dry between uses as if left wet for long periods of time, they risk degrading. Common sense really! ;-)
