In the olden times, the people used to colour woollen [sic] stockings with the moss that grew on the walls. When they would have the stockings ready to colour they would wet them in cold water put them into a pot of water alongwith the moss and boil them together. When they were taken out they were a brown colour. Then they washed the stockings and put them out to dry.
