The Weaver's Cottage is the home of the Weaver, and the place where Rhysand sends Feyre in A Court of Mist and Fury to retrieve his family ring. It is situated deep in the eastern forest in The Middle, the central and neutral part of Prythian.

Description

The Weaver's cottage appears as a small, whitewashed cottage with a thatched roof and half-crumbling chimney set in the center. It seems almost ordinary, or mortal. There is even a well, its bucket perched on the stone lip and a wood pile beneath one of the round windows of the cottage. There is no sound or light coming from within the cottage, not even smoke puffing from the chimney. The trees around the clearing grow so close that their branches nearly claw at the roof. Mossy earth paves the way to the front door.

Inside the cottage has a large main room, with a small, shut door in the back. Floor-to-ceiling shelves line the walls, crammed with bric-a-brac: books, shells, dolls, herbs, pottery, shoes, crystals, more books, jewels... From the ceiling and wood rafters hung all manner of chains, dead birds, dresses, ribbons, gnarled bits of wood, and strands of pearls. In the gloom of the cottage sits a large spinning wheel, cracked and dulled with age and in the shelves directly behind it there are cones upon cones of threads of every color and texture. And on the shelf adjacent there are swaths and yards of woven thread (made from the body parts of the Weaver's victims, like flesh and hair) woven by the massive loom nearly hidden in the darkness near the hearth. The Weaver's loom.

Ona shelf with an old letter knife, books in leather, a handful of acorns, and a tarnished crown of ruby and jasper was the ring Feyre was sent to find.

When Feyre was escaping from the Weaver she passed through the oily stinking chimney and landed on the roof where she learned that the roof is not thatched with hay but with hair.

Trivia

  • Feyre described the cottage as a junk shop of some immortal hoarder.
