How to Make Rope Out of the Yucca Plant

The yucca is a perennial plant with long sword-shaped leaves, typically found in rocky deserts, prairies, grasslands, mountainous regions and coastal sands.

It can be used in survival situations like:

  • Food (in most species the flower is edible);
  • Soap (fibers from the leaf mixed with water creates a paste that can be used as soap)
  • Fire (dried yucca plant makes great tinder).

Yucca fibers are quite strong so they’re great for making your own rope. Follow this tutorial from Survival Life to learn how to make your own.
