Product Details

Char cloth for firestarting is a swatch of fabric made from vegetable fiber (such as linen, cotton or jute) that has been converted into a slow-burning fuel of very low ignition temperature. It can be ignited by a single spark that can in turn be used to ignite a tinder bundle to start a fire.

While certain material was preferred, tinder could be anything dry and flammable. Charred rags (charcloth) were kept in many tinderboxes. After cloth had been partly burnt the remnants were thin and relatively easy to light with a spark. Dried moss leaves or fungus, and raw unspun flax were other alternatives.

See related items below for other firestarting products such as hand forged strikers, flint chips, and flint and steel sets, etc.

Size: Approximately 2"x16"
