Yet here you are on Home of Poi which sells Kevlar? umm

You can use the other things, but they'll last about 1-3 burns before they need to be replaced, and they'll spray bits of burning material all over the place whilst you spin them, so it's probably best not to.

Posted:Why can't you order stuff online? You obviously have access to a computer, so thats not the problem. I'm assuming you have an address to deliver it too (if not you have more important things to sort out than what to make wicks from!). The only realistic option I can think of is not having a bank account with a debit card or a credit card. However even then you must know someone who does, ask them to place the order and give them the cash if you're really that stuck. People use kevlar for a reason...
