Making Char Cloth


This is just a quick photo of making some char cloth. Char cloth is used when using flint and tinder to start a fire. Char cloth is just cotton or linen with impurities burned off just like charcoal or coke. The cloth is loaded into a metal container with a few very small holes poked in it. I put the container on the dying fire. This picture shows the smoke billowing out of the tiny holes.
