Hello! I have been playing with some steel strikers I was gifted. After a mildly frustrating learning curve, I finally got "the knack" of it, and am now able to happily start fires. The char cloth I got as a gift from @pellegrino, which was made by @Red Yeti is excellent. All of the strikers are great! Nice, easy sparks. Thanks @gohammergo who sent several strikers and lots of flint.... Anyway, I have been trying to make my own char cloth. Everything seems fine.... but the cloth doesn't take, or "hold" the spark. I can see the red spark land on the cloth, but unlike with the cloth which @Red Yeti made, the spark simply disappears. What am I doing wrong? I have tried jean, cotton pads, thinner cotton.... They come out looking fine.... black and charred. But they won't hold a spark. Help!
