Posted: does jute burn as even and look as good as kevlar? I just made a mini rope dart out of jute (wick head) outter races of skateboard bearings (weight) and sterling silver ball chain (i still have yet to flame test it)
i just threw this together in a few minutes but i am going to fire test everything and make sure 100% its safe and strong.
i just wanted to know if it was as good as kevlar

Jute's sometimes used as a housing material because it's cheap and fire resistant to a degree (as in flames won't spew everywhere like with synthetic or some kinds of cotton). Whereas it's strength, it's sometimes used to make packaging. Not sure if this all leads to it being good for fiery wicks though.
As far as I know, Jute, being a natural fiber, isn't going to hold up to being burnt with fuel. While if dry, it is bumped with fire it won't ignite instantly, that's very different from fueling it and igniting it. Chances are it's going to fly apart in short order. Might last a few spins, but when it fails, it's going to be bad.
