Fiber is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be acquired by harvesting plants by hand, or more effectively with a Metal Sickle, or by using a Moschops, Gigantopithecus, Dire Bear and/or a Therizinosaur.
Fiber is one of the early base raw materials in Ark and is used in many crafting recipes as an ingredient. Crafting a metal sickle isn't possible until the player reaches level 30, however, a Gigantopithecus can be tamed at any level, though it is risky to attempt this without the proper tools to defend oneself. Fiber can also be found in white and green Supply Crates.
Fiber is used to craft a lot of items, including:
- Armor (all types)
- Platform Saddles
- Refining Forge
- Simple Bed
- Preserving Bin
- Ballista Turret
- Spear Bolt
- Crop Plots
- Thatch Structures and Buildings
- Wooden Structures and Buildings
