Posted:What kind of poi do you want? I suggest making some sock poi. Just buy a long-ish pair of socks. Pour in some lentils or dried beans/peas into the toe of the socks. Tie a knot just above the beans/peas/lentils to stop them sliding around and a knot at the top of the socks as handles and then spin them. If its fire poi you are after be careful to check the quality of chains, links, handles and wicks before you buy them.
