Nine Woods In The Cauldron
Designed by Wendy Wilson of Magic in Your Living Room
This Pagan altar cloth or Wiccan altar cloth is an updated version of the Nine Woods Altar Cloth. The Wiccan Rede is usually quoted as: An' it harm none, do as you will. However there is a long version that includes couplets on casting a circle, honoring the moon, and other Wiccan ritual components. And part of that long version includes these lines: Nine woods in the Cauldron go, burn them quick and burn them slow. This design shows all 9 of the trees or "woods" mentioned in the rede: Birch, Oak, Rowen, Willow, Hawthorn, Hazel, Apple, Grape and Fir. And now, it includes the verse that it illustrates. Any time on the wheel of the year would be a good time for this symbolic cloth and it would be great on your personal altar
This is a beautiful altar cloth, about 18" or 45 cm square. It is a quality textile, professionally printed from my design. All my altar cloths are 2-ply, high quality printed cotton backed by cotton, for a nice weight on the altar. Altar cloths are available, as a special order, in any size up to about 34" square. If you want a customized version, get in touch with me. I can update the design and get it printed. I can also provide yard goods with the design in different sizes.
