This industrial grade, long-life Kevlar Fire Wick is a blend of Kevlar (para-aramid fibre) and clothing quality fibreglass yarn. This is as good as fire wick gets with an optimal balance of absorbency, strength and
durability. Our Kevlar wicks are safe and suitable for fire eating and body contact fire performance.
DIY TIP: 1m will make a pair of our standard rolled wicks for poi and staff (50cm on each wick) they will have a 3.5 minute burn time. For a longer (approx. 5 minute) burntime use 75cm on each wick.
BEWARE OF CHEAP AND NASTY WICKS: COTTON: white and will fall apart after the first burn. ASBESTOS: white and fire-proof but deadly. Causes lung disease. Often made in Thailand and other parts of Asia. METALLIC BLENDS: they often look the same as safe Kevlar blends, however, they contain metal thread to give them strength which, when heated, becomes brittle resulting in sharp metal particles which break off when you are fire eating or when your skin comes in contact with it.
