    This is most probably Eriophorum scheuchzeri.

    An amazing and versatile plant. Thanks for this information.


    i remember seeing huge masses of this plant growing in the Scottish highlands many years ago; a spectacular sight, Thanks for the lovely photo and the information.

    Looks like baby Truffula Trees from the Lorax;)

    In the Shetland Islands they call it “Lucky’s Oo” (wool)

    This plant used, and hopefully still grows in boggy spots on the moors in the North of England. I’m a handspinner and would love to spin some, if anyone has some.

      That was my immediate thought, Ms Taylor. Wonder if any ancient people had done any cloth building with this plant.
