We think we might have spotted Lion's Mane growing on a standing tree about 3-4 feet above the ground growing on the bark. It was cream colored with maybe a hint of orange hues around the edges. The tentacles were very thin (like the size of needles) and close together. Does anybody know how this mushroom feels to the touch? It felt like fabric when I touched it (which was very surprising).

Lions Mane mushrooms feel soft and flexible to me... I probably would have described them as like a popped balloon. Fabric-like works for me as well. Especially if described as wet fabric.

Edited a few hours later to add: Or like al-dente spaghetti.
