I wrapped up the driveshaft on the truck once with green sweet clover stalks. It took me an hour to cut all those stalks off the drive shaft with my pocket knife.

Try flax straw. It is flexible and very strong and will wrap like nothing you have ever seen. Gets stronger in the process. We had a wrap on the driveshaft of the IH grain truck one harvest. It kept picking up more and more til the ball of rotating straw pulled one of the hydraulic hoses off the truck hoist. Could have been worse if one of the combine drivers had not noticed it. Last harvest I had it wrap on the front driveshaft of my Magnum tractor. Even at 3 mph the straw was getting hot enough to turn black from heat against the driveshaft. It took a saw and plenty of time to clear the straw wrap every time.
