Moss wall from real Iceland moss / reindeer moss ( also called moss lichen )

Iceland moss is a shrub lichen that grows in a cushion shape. It resembles a close community of forest fungi and algae. Nevertheless, many synonyms are used such as Icelandic moss, Irish moss, reindeer moss or fever moss. It is a rigid, scaly and antler-like branched plant.
Nevertheless, Iceland moss can grow from 4 to 15 cm. The plant is known for its healing properties. You may know them from the pharmacy.

Originally, Icelandic moss was discovered by the Icelanders as a medicinal herb. It has been used for respiratory diseases such as hoarseness and cough, but also for inflammation of the mouth. In addition, it could be successfully used in chronic pneumonia or bronchitis. The braiding acids of Iceland moss have an antibiotic effect. They thus relieve irritation and have a pain-relieving effect. The medicinal plant can be administered in the form of teas, tinctures or tablets.

Where does ball moss / bale moss / mound moss / cushion moss come from ?

The ball moss processed by Moos-Moos Manufaktur comes from our own European forests. Collecting is more like “looking for mushrooms”. The globe moss is mainly found in mixed forests, which provide optimal humidity and often hides under needles and foliage.

The beautiful ball moss or also called cushion moss, must be collected sustainably and gently. This is allowed only in private forests. A maximum of 20-30% of the ball moss found may be harvested so that it can grow back sufficiently and nature is spared. We use our checkerboard principle for this, harvesting only the “white” areas in order to find a closed moss cover again in the future.
