Found a big tough stalk of common mallow by the bay yesterday. Excited to mess with it and see if it can make good cordage like I heard :o
@sunflower_avenue It is! I don't really know what I'm doing, just that:
a) the fibrous parts need be removed from the pith
b) you can make cordage using the "reverse wrap technique"
I try to be observant when I'm out walking, and touch plants a bit to see which give me the impression they have a really fibrous body. 🌿
