In the spring or early summer, there are 2–4 inches thick (5–10 cm) at the base line, which can be as small as possible. It comes at a time when juice comes in. Personally, I do not cut alone standing limes. This sapling was taken from the underbrush. Often, there is a large linden has fallen. Chop the line as possible.
Remove the bark
Make a cut of the bark along the log.
Start removing the bark. Since the crust is very strong. To help yourself, use a tool called “Spud” (chisel-shaped piece of wood)
Until you completely get it.
Once you have been flowing away from the tree Use it to keep it completely submerged.
Finally, you need to separate the layers of the crust. It depends on the temperature of the water.
It will not bother you. Most likely, it will settle on its surface. Remove the mucus, squeeze it until it is clean.
This will make you extremely strong! Traditionally, these fibers were called “linseed bast” and have been used to make ropes. This is an extremely valuable resource.
It will be ideal for making ropes. Since they are very long, they are very practical.
