Not to worry. These are left-over fibers from last years growth. Most hostas leave stumps of these after the old leaves disintegrate. Btw, they should be arranged in a circle around the basal periphery of the new shoot. If that is the case do not worry, it's nature at work.

Subject: Hosta Question

While working in one of my hosta beds today, I noticed that several have some hairy material around the base of the pips. Is this going to create a problem for the hostas? 
Should I sprinkle some soil on top of the pips to cover these hairs up, or should I dig up the hosta and plant it deeper?
Or, should I just leave them alone?
