When I went out to find images the other day and found an area of blooming, growing teasles. Teasles are interesting in that they are biannual. They have been used in the early (start of the industrial revolution) wool manufacturers attached the seed heads (covered with stiff, hooked points) to a spindle for the purpose of teasing (combing) cloth to raise the nap. Therefore, they are sometimes known as “weavers’ Teasles”. Please click on image to see details best.
