In order to make it easier for you to start your fire, especially with a traditional fire steel, you need something catch the sparks. Charcloth does this very well!
The cotton fabric has undergone a slow heating process in an oxygen-poor environment, just like when making charcoal. The result is a fabric with the same characteristics as coal – it smoulders and glows. Once your tinder is smouldering it can be transferred to a bundle of dry grass or other plant fibers to start the fire. A great alternative to tinder fungus!
