A small number of porcupine quills

Porcupine quills were the sharp spines that covered porcupines, defending them from predators. Porcupine quills were plentiful since the animals continually replenished them.

Porcupine quills were an ingredient in several potions, including the Cure for Boils.[1] Quills that had caused no harm were considered the best by potion-makers.[2]

The Porcupine Robe was a special type of robe made out of porcupine quills.[3] It protected the wearer by hurting anyone who tried to physically attack them.[3]
