Hi,
I'm looking for knitted rope wick 3/8 inch (9.5mm) diameter and would be after a full roll (or at least 80meters). I've only found it from US sellers.
Does any one have a lead on a european / uk seller?

Any hints much appreciated. Thanks!

image of the kind of rope wick I'm after here.

Would love to order from you guys, but from the image I can't tell if the rope wick you sell is the knitted rope wick I'm after... I believe that braided rope wick is different. Do you have a close up pic of your rope wick so I can double check this?

Thanks!

This is the same pattern of our braided kevlar mix rope. Also called "knit braided ropes"

So yes ours is knitted, as opposed to twisted (twined) construction.

However there are a multitude of different knitted rope patterns, from loose to tight and number of strands used.


Here you can see our knitted braid pattern of 1 inch rope on a pair of snake poi
