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 may 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.

In all DLCs, more crafting recipes require Cut Grass. Cut Grass can also be gained from crops on a Farm that is 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 the Reign of Giants DLC, Cut Grass drops from all Tumbleweeds, making it renewable even if the player burns all the spawned Grass Tufts.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Cut Grass and Grass Tufts appear greener, however their function is identical. Cut Grass may be dropped by the Slot Machine when three carrots are rolled.

In the Hamlet DLC, Cut Grass is required to craft Lawn Turf and Beard Hair Rugs. It can be acquired by cutting down Tall Grass with a Machete, yielding 1 Cut Grass, or by clipping it with Shears, yielding 2 Cut Grass. It may also be dropped when Hammering A Smashing Pot.

In Don't Starve Together, Cut Grass is used to craft Telltale Hearts, Flares, Wardrobes and Friendly Scarecrows. Winona uses Cut Grass to craft Trusty Tapes. In addition, it is also dropped by Grass Gekkos (either startled or killed) and can be found in Ocean Debris.
