A type of Gwitihn in Welsh folklore. She had the appearance of a hag who wore grey clothes and a four cornered hat that had a cooking pot on it. She kept to her goats combing their beards every Wednesday and sometimes she turned into a goat herself. She would ambush travellers passing her way in the mountains and make a noise created by wobbling her lips and shaking her sideways. Anyone hearing this or seeing her were doomed to drown bottomless water pits in the mountains.
