Q: I remember the adults used to gather them [the pussy willows] and they used to lay them aside and they became ripe afterwards, didnít they?

A: Yes, they gathered them when they became too dry to chew. That meant that they were ripe. When you tried chewing them they felt feathery and dry when they became ripe. They would gather those and leave them on a shelf and the pussy willows would ripen and became furry-looking. They did that because they needed the outer part for wicks. Those plants were essential for their uses then. They would gather enough to last them through the winter season.

The leaves of the willow are edible and the peeled roots are used for soothing tooth aches. The willow fluff is collected for use as wicks in a qulliq.
