Jute Twine is an excellent tinder when the fibers are untwisted and separated into fine strands. They can be balled up and easily ignited with a simple spark from a firestarter. Our Jute comes on a small dispenser that has a cutter built into the top. With 200 feet, you will have emergency tinder forever, and of course, can also be used as twine to build a shelter, etc. The dispenser measures only 4-1/8" x 3" x 1-1/16"., and weighs 2.2 oz. Throw one in every pack!
