Is the Reindeer Moss alive?
The lichen is no longer alive and does not require any maintenance or water or sunlight. It does not attract dust or insects, and is hypoallergenic. The lichen will retain its shape, colour and texture.
Is the Reindeer Moss picked sustainably?
Yes. Our Reindeer Moss is picked by hand, following strict rules in terms of environment and sustainability across an area of about 15.000 km² (5800 mi²) and is certified by ISO 9001 & 14001.
Does the Reindeer Moss remain soft?
The preserved Reindeer Moss will indicate the current humidity by feeling soft above 40-50% RH, and hard below. It does this by absorbing and releasing ambient moisture.
Are the products suitable for outdoor use?
