Didn't have a lot to do yesterday evening , so I watched Wave Man's instructional vid on char cloth and set to make some myself. I used patches from an old pair of jeans and baked them over a low heat for about 15 minutes. Some patches were still a bit brown , but I just separated them and baked for another 5 or so minutes . It's raining today so I can't use the sun , but the cloth takes a spark from a ferro rod easily . Thanks for the tips Wave Man .
