Brown (Dry) Willow for Basketry & Sculpture
Brown (or dried) willow is natural willow that has been dried with its bark on. It is most suited to outdoor sculpture work, basketry and hurdles as it still has its outer skin for protection. As a rule of thumb soak brown willow in cold water for one day per foot in length to make it pliable enough to weave with, e.g. a 3ft bundle will need 3 days soaking time, a 6ft bundle will need 6 days soaking time.
