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 close contact fire performance.
DIY TIP: 1 metre will make 2 of our standard rolled wicks for a pair of fire poi or a staff (50cm on each wick) It 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 because cotton is not fire proof. ASBESTOS: white and fireproof but deadly. Causes lung disease. Often made in Thailand and other parts of Asia. METALLIC BLENDS: they can look the same as safe Kevlar blends but they are made with 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 it touches your skin.
