Thistle silk

The ends of a thistle are soft and silky.

I wonder how it would work as pillow stuffing?

Thistle Silk

Ouch!

I do not know what this plant is called. I haven’t yet looked it up, either. But I do recognize it now!

DO NOT TOUCH!!

DO NOT TOUCH!!

Unsolicited advice: Do not brush up against it with your bare ankle or leg. Do not drag your forearm across it when picking flowers. And definitely do NOT sit on it when taking photos! Actually, avoid sitting on it in any situation 😉
