Welcome. Our purposes are to increase understanding and appreciation for Wee Folk of all types, and to promote their interests. It is our firm belief that a human society can only be healthy if the Wee Folk who live with it are comfortable and happy.

Above, there are links to descriptions of types of Wee Folk. On the right, you will see a list of articles relative to some aspect of the lives of Wee Folk. Alternatively, you can scroll through the entries below. The most popular seems to be The Pot of Gold – A Leprechaun’s Myth, though it is not really the one I like best. Also very popular are Conflict Resolution Processions of Fairies, Languages of Wee Folk, and Cathartic Poetry of Wee Folk. I would recommend Wee Folk as Healers and The Fairies’ History of Counterpoint and Harmony as personal favorites.

We hope you find this site helpful and enjoyable.

A Note from S in Scotland

Hi,

Did I tell you that when I was taking a bus across the isle of Mull, I saw mountain giants sleeping? They were the biggest “faeries” ever. Now I understand why mountains have names.
