Our fire wick is based around the durable Kevlar ® organic (para-aramid) fibre, enhanced with our special blend of non-irritant clothing grade fiberglass yarn.
The continuous filament fiber we use is about as good as it gets when balancing absorbency, strength, durability, fire rating and user comfort.
Specifically woven into our commercial grade, high absorbency, flameproof textile, with increased absorbency and all wefts (horizontal threads) doubling back on themselves for greater durability (especially in edge wear/fraying).
In fact, the weave pattern and tension has been carefully controlled to balance the opposing properties of durability and soak-ability.
The result is an optimum capillary effect for fuel soakage and transfer out to the flame whilst still ensuring excellent flame and abrasion resistance and overall strength.
It is also lightweight, and has good flexibility, drapability and non-stretch characteristics.
Rest assured our wick does not contain any asbestos (often used in fire proofing), which is known for causing cancer when inhaled.
Neither does it contain any sharp or skin burning metallic thread.
Metallic threads are sometimes added to give a sense of strength and durability, but we have found the thin metal fibers become brittle with the heat and break to create a hazard to users – especially if performing wraps or fire eating.
Yes you could buy cheaper, however more fire performers prefer our fire wick for its added performance-based features and for their personal safety.
We believe this wick to be the top choice for fire performers, and since we manufacture in bulk, we can pass on this top quality wick at an affordable price.
We keep several tons in stock and supply many other respectable fire tool manufacturers, throughout the world.
We are constantly testing alternative 'mixes' and will always aim to bring you the best possible wick for your performance needs.

Dependable and friendly service - worldwide!Reviewer: Peter Woolsey from Canada
It's a pleasure dealing with "Home of Poi" because their customer service is fast, friendly and totally transparent. Although I live in Canada which is half way around the world from New Zealand, my orders always arrive within a week ... which is amazing! And importantly, they do a really good job of keeping in touch with me during the order cycle by quickly sending an email to confirm each order and by providing a web link (single click) to see the status of my order at any time. It's marvelous! Home of Poi's Web-based order desk provides clear visibility so that I always know the status of my order. Let me wrap-up by simply saying that Home of Poi's customer service is truly excellent!!!
