Which is the rabbit fur blanket and the rabbit fur blanket the materials, the IE that's been used for a long time, is the yucca, and here we have some yucca, that's been cooked or roasted cooked in um, and we need To clean it, take off the skin of the yucca and get to the fibers. That's inside so I'll be demonstrating a little a bit of how to clean the yucca and to get to the yucca fibers, which well-well be used in rabbit fur blanket, which is the cordage, and we make a long rope or string out of it. And then we will have rabbit pelts and we cut that up and then we'll twine the rabbit pelt around the cordage. They, the echo fibers - and here I have on some yucca soap, that I've made on my own and this one it pretty much cleans the yucca. Really good gives it a where you don't have too much of the fibers losing too much fibers from the DECA it self.
It's a yucca root. You know the yucca root, you take off the the the layer, the hard layer off and then you have the the inside and what I did is I just chopped that up and then I put that in a pot and I cook that and then the the Said started to foam, and then I use the material and to strain it through, and so I got most of the suds out of the what was boiled. And then I kept the one that I strained and I put it into a container plastic container and let that sit for months and it got pretty thick on its own. It gets thick on its own, and so that's how I make my episode and then you know I use that for either cleaning some of the this yucca yucca stuff. The sticks are the leaves either that or I'll use it for to wash my hair with and then the rest of the the DECA I froze it and I save it that way.
I can we reuse that again, so this is frozen right now and I have to kind of let it fall out a little bit then that way I can start cleaning cleaning the deck up hybrid, so we use it a pipe. I bought me a mail opener and then I have a butter knife here, so I use stuff that has a soft edge that way it will take off the yucca. Sometimes we'll use animal deer antler, but I prefer to use this one. I just get all that pulp off of the yucca yeah once it's roasted or cooked, it's good to put it in the freezer right away, and that way it breaks up the its while it's in the freezer. It tends to soften the yucca on its own and and then it's a lot easier to clean that way.
The pulp will just come right out from the fibers, but if not, if it's not either fully cooked or then you lose a lot of fiber, and you don't want that, then this this green stuff, we keep because you can make paper out of it. So once so, once it's cleaned and you can just set it there and sit in there - there's different sizes of yucca. There's then some of them - and I noticed that the the fibers are thick and then some of them is small. I mean really thin and it seems like that. I think them this.
The southern yucca they're a lot thicker and the northern is thinner when you're cleaning, the yucca you want the fibers to you know. You know when it's clean is when the fibers kind of separate on its own, like that you can kind of push down on the stem here. Sometimes you'll kind of like when you're cooking, the yucca, sometimes you'll like burn it and you'll know when it's burned and then that part, you probably want to you know, get rid of because that'll um just break of course right away.
Then sometimes, if you want to see, if you're, if you clean your the yucca strips pretty good, you can always go back and just put it in the water and just use your nail, and some of this stuff will come off like that to me, when you Wrote the or cook the yucca it it smells like roast corn, roasted steamed corn to me, but some people think it smells a little bit a little bit funky. But I don't know I guess it depends on what it smells like to you.
