Full Rolls can have up to 2,000 ft on them and normally get shipped around slowly by sea.

Cutting KEVLAR®

KEVLAR® has a very high cut resistance. Which means it will blunt even the most expensive scissors very fast. At HoP we use box cutters or craft knives which have replaceable blades. Do not ever use your mum's favorite dress fabric scissors or you will be in big trouble!


KEVLAR® is one of the most important women made organic fibers ever developed. Because of it's unique combination of properties, KEVLAR® is used today in a wide variety of industrial applications. KEVLAR® para-aramid fiber possesses a remarkable combination of properties that have led to it's adoption in a variety of end-uses since it's commercial introduction in the early 1970s.

We mainly sell KEVLAR® Wick Rope per meter or per ft (units depend on the language settings).

The KEVLAR® wicks we sell are ideal for all types of fire props (Fire Poi, Fire Staff, Fire Fans...). If you look after the wick and keep it pulled tight it can last for years.

However, if you let the kevlar fire wicks smolder by allowing all the fuel to be used up then the KEVLAR® wick will burn away slowly and fall apart. Sunlight also degrades and darkens the color of KEVLAR® wick slowly over time. So it is good to have wick covers when using Fire Props during daylight, it also stops you getting your daytime clothes dirty from the residues on the wicks. Many people wrap some tin foil over the wicks and then put some colorful socks over that. We also sell some fluffy covers which can fit over some common KEVLAR® Fire Heads.

A lot of people fasten wick onto their props with screws and to stop themselves from getting branded by a hot screw head they stitch a flap of KEVLAR® tape over the screw heads.

Because of how expensive pure KEVLAR® is our wick also contains other aramid fibers and fabric grade fiberglass (not the kind that itches or stabs you - after all at HoP we work with it all day).

Fibers of KEVLAR® consist of long molecular chains produced from poly-para phenylene terephthalamide. The chains are highly oriented with strong interchain bonding which result in a unique combination of properties

First purchase
"I just received my first purchase from and I am very satisfied, both with the price and the quality of the kevlar that I purchased. I am also very happy with the swift and useful support team. Another thing that stood out to me was how well the product was packaged and labeled, which makes it much more likely for it to arrive to its destination. I also love the idea of using discount codes, which makes shopping here a little lighter on my pocket, though my purchase was well worth the full price. I would definitely recommend homeofpoi to any fire art enthusiast as it's so far the best source of high-quality kevlar I could find, and that is why I rate it with 5 stars!"
