  • Make rope out of dead plants -- with no tools

    I've done something similar with nettle fibers...Disclaimer, nettles don't bother me at all, so don't blame me if you get stung! Actually crushing the plant is the cure for the stings. They smell particularly green too. I've also made cordage from the inner bark of a cottonwood tree, and it comes out surprisingly supple...I could almost see knitting or crocheting clothing from it.
