Mixed Besom – Large
Crafted of Natural Wood Handle & Multi Colored Broomcorn
Up your Quidditch game, or just enjoy the lovely lines of our most aerodynamic broom. This hand-crafted broom has smooth, thinner lines than our others and cuts a dashing picture wherever you put it. The multi-toned broomcorn is colored with non-toxic, stable dyes which, under normal circumstances, will not run. This is perfect for a simple altar and brings a strength and elegance to your ritual.
Your unique broom will be approximately 56 inches(1.4 meters). This handcrafted broom is made with natural wood branches, and crafted individually so will vary slightly from photo.
Traditionally brooms and besoms have been used for:
- Sweeping evil and negativity from your path
- Preparing your space for ritual
- Hand-fasting/Wedding Gift
- House Warming Gift
- Protection from Bad Luck
- "Jump the Broom" for wedding/hand fasting
About your Broom:
The broom sticks are harvested sustainably in Oregon with a local restoration program. The sticks then go into a kiln for drying. A band saw is used in a very unusual, creative way to shapes and sculpt your broom stick... many times you will see a wood spirit peering.
The best 100% broomcorn called "hurl" is used in creating each broom.
A broom winder, from an original machine in the 1800's is used to apply the broomcorn to the stick. Then a post Civil War era boom vice is used to flatten and sew the broomcorn. From the vice, the brooms go to the "Kick Winder" where platting the broom stalks is done. Once the broom is finished, it goes to the "cropper", another 1800's tool, to be trimmed to the desired shape, whether rounded, straight or angled.
Please note: If you would like a broom for Halloween/Samhain or a Yule gift, plan ahead - the Autumn months and Yule season are our busiest time for brooms and besoms.
Warning: Prolonged exposure to sunlight may fade the broomcorn over time.
