A Court of Thorns and Roses Wiki

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



After Stryga, his twin brother, Bone Carver and his older brother Koschei arrived in the territory currently known as Prythain they were considered Old Gods by the Fae living in that moment. After they established a reign of terror, an ancient female Fae managed to make Stryga wane her powers and thus lock her in a cottage in the heart of Prythian, lock up the Bone Carver in the Prison and Koschei in a lake on the Continent.

A Court of Mist and Fury[]

Rhysand asks Feyre to retrieve something from him at the Weaver's cottage as a way to practice her tracking ability. Once there, Feyre entered the house and saw that it was a room with many shelves full of things and there was also the Weaver with her back to her spinning on a wheel. Feyre was able to discover among the things a ring that was owned by Rhys and when she grabbed it the Weaver noticed it. She sealed the house against intruders so she couldn't get out. Feyre tried to climb up the chimney but found it blocked and the Weaver was about to catch her until she remembered that as Fae she had great strength and she knocked down the chimney to be able to climb to the ceiling and escape. Once on the roof she realized that it was made of human hair and the walls of bone and human fat, something that she had not realized when entering.

A Court of Wings and Ruin[]

Rhysand sent Helion, the High Lord of the Day Court, to convince Stryga to make a pact with them to aid the Prythian United Courts army in their war with Hybern. She agreed on the condition of being released from her prison.

Feyre later appeared at her cottage pursued by Ianthe, the High Priestess of the Spring Court and two Hybern soldiers. She locked them in the cottage where the Weaver murdered and ate them, keeping Ianthe's circlet as a reward for herself.


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.

On a 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.


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