Making cotton wool fire lighters

For me bushcraft is all about the natural world and so when it comes to fire lighting I prefer natural tinders.  But it makes sense to carry a few things with you that will allow you to light a fire quickly should the need arise.  So here’s a short video of me making cotton wool fire lighters inpregnated with wax.

We discuss making cotton wool fire lighters, as well as manmade tinders, natural tinders and firelighting on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Coursesand the IOL Bushcraft Competency Certificate.

You can see loads of photos on our Facebook page.
