    Hemp fiber is quite flammable and can even be used to make a fuse. (Wikipedia) A slow match is a very slow-burning fuse consisting of a hemp or cotton rope saturated with an oxidizer such as potassium nitrate. Slow matches are used as a source of fire for manually lighting other devices

    CALIFORNIA STATE SCIENCE FAIR 2011 PROJECT SUMMARY Emmaline A. Meill
    Burn Notice! The Effect of Different Types and States of Materials on Ignition Time and Combustion Rate of Cloth Swatch The objective is to determine how quickly different types of cloth under different states of wear and different temperatures ignite and how quickly they combust.
    Methods/Materials
    20.32 cm by 20.32 cm swatches of different materials -100% wool, linen, acetate, cotton, and polyester, silk, felt, nylon, 50/50 nylon polyester blend, 80% polyester, 20% spandex blend, and hemp- were subjected to wear (repeated washings in a washer and dryer) and different temperatures, then the swatches, both worn and new, at room temperature and body temperature, were burned and their ignition time and combustion rate timed/calculated. Combustion rate was calculated by dividing the amount burned (in cm2) by the time burned to find the rate in cm2/second. Results
    The material with the longest ignition time was polyester, with a 9.98 second ignition time, while the materials with the shortest ignition times were hemp and silk, both with 1.58 second ignition times. The material with the slowest combustion rate was wool with 2.39cm2 burned per second, while acetate burned the most quickly, with a combustion rate of 17.52 cm2 burned per second. The data for wear and temperature for both ignition times and combustion rates was found to be statistically insignificant. Conclusions/Discussion
    This experiment provides examples of materials that are in their nature, without any specific flame-retardant treatment, flame resistant # materials that take longer to ignite and combust slower, that could better one's chance of survival and/or not sustaining serious injury in a fire-related situation. The findings of the experiment were that polyester had the longest ignition time while hemp and silk had the shortest, and that wool had the slowest combustion rate while acetate had the fastest.

    1 acre = 4840 square yards, so that's over $3 per square yard wholesale.
