Emergency Plaster From Mountain Grass

How To Make An Emergency Plaster From A Common Mountain Grass:
Fionnán Or Purple Moor Grass

This stayed intact on the finger for five hours and survived rope coiling, driving and (careful!) hand washing.

1. Pluck the grass carefully from as low down as possible.

2. Wind carefully and tightly around wounded finger, extending well beyond the wound.

3. Trap or wrap the beginning of the grass under itself.

4. A series of simple round interwoven knots, or clove hitch knot will hold plaster in place.
