How to Get Cloth in RimWorld
There are only two ways players can get cloth in RimWorld:
- Buy it from traders
- Harvest it from cotton plants
The first option should be straightforward. Most traders could have cloth with them when they visit your settlement.
However, you are more likely to sell cloth to them rather than buy it from them. The only difference is that traders can give different colored cloth. You can only make light gray cloth on the farm.
The second way is the recommended way. To get cloth in RimWorld, you will actually need to make it.
How to Make Cloth in RimWorld
To make cloth in RimWorld, you need to start a cotton farm. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open the Architect menu from the bottom left part of the screen.
- Press on the Zone option and then select the Growing Zone.
- Create a zone where you will plant the cotton. Once that is done, click on the zone, press “P” on your keyboard, or click the plant that is shown to the right (usually Corn plant).
- Select the cotton plant from the options and make sure you have colonists that will grow the plants.
Now, it usually takes around 8 days for a cotton plant to grow on 100% fertility ground, so let your pawns plant them and wait until they are ripe for harvest.
Once that is done, you can harvest them for around 10 cloth per plant if you let them grow to 100%.
Make sure to bring them inside your storage, as they will quickly deteriorate out in the open.
There are only a couple of items you can craft with cloth, so we will list them here:
- Billiards table
- Poker table
- Molotov cocktails
- Flak jacket
- Flak pants
- Flak vest
- Rustic rug (broad)
- Rustic rug (medium)
- Sacrificial flag
- Hex carpet
- Mindbend carpet
- Morbid carpet
- Fine carpet
You should be careful when you build things out of cloth as they will be extremely flammable. It is the easiest textile to burn in the whole game.
