A brat is the Irish word for mantle, usually used to signify a piece of cloth or clothing set out on the hearth, or more traditionally out of the window, on Imbolc in order for Brighid to bless. During the year this brat may be used for healing and protection. As time goes on, and the same piece of cloth is left out each year, its powers increase.

Any idea what fiber or fibers was/were normally used to make the Brat?

I've been pondering the benefits of locally grown wool but recently I've been "walking through ghosts" over needing to eventually grow and work with flax.

Anyone here have a thundery storm with crashing lightning designated drop spindle or knitting (or knotting) project?
I feel like such a fool not to have started one myself. Its been striking me more and more like I've been wasting Energy by not collecting it when its available.

(note to yewberry: not a clue if its physically inspired by my cataracts, its a deeper what gets called a "learning disability" these days, or just a mannerism of speech that I'm trying to convey visually (sometimes how a thing is said gives more meaning than the words used? if that means any sense to anyone else here)
but if I don't sometimes space things out visually here I have difficulty understanding what I've written.
I hope you can see to humor me on this idiosyncrasy of mine. I've been trying to tone it down on this list but...
but if it continues to bother you (or any of the rest of y'all) feel free to PM me about it and I'll try to be more accommodating.) OK?
