About Wiccan Robes
Whether you are a sole practitioner or a member of a thriving coven, Wiccan robes bring a sense of occasion to any sabbat. For Samhain or Yule, choose full-length jewel tones in velvet or wool. Short cotton robes with a simple belt are perfect for casual esbats or summer holy days like Lugnasadh. Choose loose-fitting robes with side slits for dancing. Beltaine calls for a more formal, floor-length look. Officiants for hand-fastings may want to choose formal Wiccan ritual robes in either black or white. Loose robes are usually unisex, but you should check the length if you are very short to avoid a tripping hazard. Fitted robes require more thought, so check the measurements carefully to ensure a good fit. Sleeves and armholes in Wiccan robes should move freely for circle casting, so if you are considering a robe with sleeves, make sure the fabric is flexible or the cut in the shoulders fits loosely. If you plan to add sigils or emblems, the fabric choice is important. Embroidering machine knits can result in unsightly bunching of the fabric, so you may prefer to stitch the designs on muslin and then attach them to your robe.
