What can you use as kindling when making a fire?

Any material that easily catches fire at low temperatures is suitable as kindling. Such materials as dry grass, pine needles and anything fluffy of plant origin all make for excellent kindling. Dry moss and the dry bark of the juniper tree, as well as cotton, linen and jute fibers, are all readily combustible. Using a greater amount of smouldering tinder and vigorously fanning can ignite bark or fine, dry wood chips. The kindling you use should be made into the shape of a small nest, into which you should place and then wrap your smouldering tinder.
