String1 craft


String are used as the bowstring for the bow or crossbow.

They are also used for making various clothes, like various pants and wooden armors. 


  • Much like Feathers, string can be used to break leaf blocks without dropping leaf debris. You can avoid picking up a lot of leaf blocks this way.
  • Ivy is found only in the Jungle biome and may be at a cave entrance or even completely underground.
  • Ivy is not found on Birch Trees nor Spruce Trees.
  • Ivy can be found on Oak Trees (only).
  • Ivy can be useful for making string when the player does not have Saltpeter and can not produce Cotton Wads to make string.
