The piece is approximately 30 inches tall and weighs about 2 pounds. It is dyed with non toxic dyes that are stable and will not bleed under normal conditions. This is a substantial broom. It is the same length as standard fireplace tools (about 30”) so it should hang on an existing rack if you have one. The round, untrimmed shape makes it very good for uneven surfaces and deep recessed mortar joints such as stone, brick or pavers. Many people like this broom for ritual and ceremonial purposes such as alters, cleansing ceremonies, sweat lodges and handfastings.
