While string may be a small object in real everyday life, its uses in Minecraft are surprisingly vast. It could probably be more considered rope, but in-game, it is a thin thread of fabric that can make Fishing Rods, Bows, Wool blocks, Leads, and much more. It can also be used to make Tripwires to set up Redstone contraptions to activate when passed through. All of these uses for String make it one of the most versatile items in Minecraft. Here is how to get more of it.

How to find String in Minecraft

There are quite a few ways to get String in Minecraft. The first and most practical way to get string is by killing Spiders. In place of the web inside them, the item will drop. You can get increased String from Spiders by killing them with a sword with the Looting enchantment. Cave Spiders also give String, but they are a little more dangerous in Survival since they poison you and are smaller targets to hit.

Additionally, if you find any Webs around the area, strike them with a Sword and String will drop. However, if you have a Silk Touch item in the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft, break down the Web and you can take it to a Crafting Table to turn that Web into nine pieces of String.

While Spiders are likely the most prominent way to get String, you can also obtain it through fishing and also Cats can bring you some in the morning as a gift. String can also be found in Chests in various dungeons and temples. If in the Nether, Piglins can be bartered with and give you up to nine pieces of string. Striders and Cats drop String upon death.

Below is the complete list of items that you can craft with String.

  • Bow
  • Candle
  • Crossbow
  • Fishing Rod
  • Lead
  • Loom
  • Scaffolding
  • White Wool
