REAL MOSS RING
This listing is for one resin ring made of exo-epoxy resin with real Speckled Horse Hair Lichen (Bryoria fuscescens) collected responsibly from BC Canada. Perfect for nature lovers as any avid outdoors-man is sure to be familiar with this lichen!
Speckled Horse Hair Lichen is a common species that hangs from evergreen trees typically found in North America forests. Also known as Wila, historically, it was used as a food source and some still cook it to this day as a tasty treat. There are many stories that explain how the moss came into existence. In an Okanagan story, a Coyote tries to catch some swans, but they fool him by playing dead. Not realizing that the swans are just faking, Coyote unwittingly ties them to his son and crawls up a pine tree to get a pitch top for kindling. The swans then flew away with his son, and in Coyote’s haste to get down to save him his long hair got caught in the tree, and Coyote has to cut off his hair to get free. Coyote then transformed his hair into wila, and pronounces that his valuable hair should not be wasted, rather it should be gathered by the people, and it should be made into food.
