Explore Outdoors ~ Teasel Texture


Spring is coming. We know this. But still, snow squally clouds let go their fluffy stuff... and the prickery stickery teasels catch it. At least on the windward side.

  • Can you tell what direction the wind was blowing?
  • What do you notice about the stem of the teasel?
  • Can you figure out why (back in the day) spinners used teasels to comb the wool before spinning it into yarn?
  • What else do you notice about the teasel?
Now go for a walk around your house or through your neighborhood. What textures do you notice in the plants (dead or alive) where you live?
