    I use homemade cordage a lot when in the woods so I don't have to carry it with me

    If you know how to determine the plants with good fiber then you can make a cordage which you can use in place of the rope. By the way, the rope is one important element when in the woods because it can be used in most of the things you do, from securing food to making a shelter safe. We have a plant here called abaca where the Manila Hemp comes from. But I know some other plants can be substitute for the abaca. Just test the stem if it is resilient and does not easily break then you can try it to make cordage.
