Make rope out of dead plants -- with no tools
I made it out of fresh grass as it was the only resource accessible to me. I am currently drying some to make the cord/rope out of dry fivers. Very helpful thanks.
For the grass could you make several strands then braid them together for strength?
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.
great tutorial! and a useful skill
you do not need to cut your hair, just make a simple wooden comb with 5 spikes, brush your hair regularly, then collect all of the hair that falls out and put onto a spindle. it accumulates very quickly.
you can also make rope and other things from your own hair, provided you are letting it grow out. A lot of tribes use their own hair in jewelry making and rope making because it is so durable, strong, and attractive looking (shiny and smooth if weaved correctly).
