Cut grass, ready for arts and crafts.

Cut Grass is a renewable resource item harvested from Grass Tufts found naturally in the world. It can be used on numerous starter recipes and in even more advanced items when refined into Rope.

Because Cut Grass is needed to craft campfires and torches, it is a valuable early-game resource to collect. A player who does not collect cut grass on their first day will have no means for making a fire at night.

In Winter, Cut Grass becomes a non-renewable resource, as harvested Grass Tufts will not regrow until Winter ends.

Reign of Giants (RoG) and Shipwrecked (SW) DLCs, add more recipes that require Cut Grass. Cut Grass can also be gained from crops on a Farm that are destroyed by the heat during Summer or Dry Season. Grass Tufts wither during these seasons unless protected by an Ice Flingomatic or located in a Mangrove biome, reducing access to Cut Grass.

In RoG It now drops from all Tumbleweeds, making it renewable even if the player burns all the spawned Grass Tufts.

In SW, the Cut Grass and Grass Tufts appear greener, however, their function is identical.

In Don't Starve Together, Cut Grass is used to craft Telltale Hearts and Friendly Scarecrows. In addition, it is also dropped by Grass Gekkos.
