Just need to clarify some stuff. Any help would be much appreciated. TIA.

1. Does KevlarTM Glass Fibre splinter? (those tiny shards which some ice hockey sticks or fireblankets give)

2. Glass Fibre = Fibre Glass?

3. Which one costs more, and why?

4. Do you have a preference, and why?

and cheapest I've found.:)
I've tested it for you, it works.

This was not some sponsored post, its my honest opinion

Get out and spin, And stop worrying about it so much smile

Thanks for the reply Glss. Well, the thing is I was thinking of stitching some more fire ropes. The set I've made are KevlarTM cotton (not from HoP) and the HoP wicks are KevlarTM glass fibre. Though I think it looks pretty reasonably priced, I want to find out whether it splinters. I've had two hands murdered with hundreds of fibreglass splinters (from an inline hockey stick)- which don't wipe off properly, and don't wash off either, and leave you -very- afraid of rubbing your eyes, and I was just wondering if I could duplicate this pleasant experience with my future creations. tongue
