Did you know that milkweed seed hairs are five times warmer than wool and six times more buoyant than cork? The fibers were used to fill soldiers’ life jackets during World War II!

While WRIG’s life jackets aren’t filled with milkweed fluff, our office is! Yesterday, these milkweed seeds were separated from pods we harvested from our pollinator garden earlier this fall. More updates to come in March when we start the cold stratification process!
