Collection: Loose Reindeer Moss

Nordic Moss offers loose reindeer moss in 15 beautiful colours of which 1 is in its natural form, being a white/bone colour.


Our reindeer moss is a lichen that grows in the forests of Lapland in the very north of Scandinavia. Its name is derived from the fact that reindeer supplement their diet with this lichen especially during the winter months. Some believe its name is due to the structure of the moss resembling reindeer antlers.

The species name for this specific lichen is Cladonia Stellaris and is the most desirable lichen in the world. The moss is completely natural and has undergone a natural preservation process to stabilise it and then dyed with natural pigments.

The moss will therefore not grow anymore and does not need any water or sunlight. To ensure it keeps its wonderful soft texture, it is recommended to be utilised in a space with approximately 40% humidity.

Loose moss is one of the most versatile interior products! Examples of how to use loose reindeer moss:

  • placed around your indoor plants (make sure to remove when watering the plant otherwise pouring water over the preserved moss will damage it) to keep the humidity in the ground, to add colour and texture around the plant
