    Cleavers herb is affectionately nicknamed sticky willy, grip grass and catchweed. Is a plant that grows in dense mats near loamy, nitrogen-rich meadows, forests and seashores. The plant has earned its nicknames from the sticky hairs along their stem that manage to catch onto whatever passes them by.

    Shepherds would tightly weave these sticky stems to make a sieve used to strain milk. This practice is still alive today in some areas of Sweden!

    While using cleavers to fashion a sieve may not be common practise in modern times. It can still be used for cold infusions, smoothies, oats and salad dressings.
