KEVLAR® Wick - Rope

By

The KEVLAR® wicks we sell are ideal for all types of fire props (Fire Poi, Fire Staff, Fire Fans...). If you look after the wick and keep it pulled tight it can last for years.

However if you let the fire wicks smoulder by allowing all the fuel to be used up then the KEVLAR® wick will burn away slowly and fall apart. Sunlight also degrades and darkens the color of KEVLAR® wick slowly over time. So it is good to have wick covers when using Fire Props during daylight, it also stops you getting your daytime clothes dirty from the residues on the wicks. Many people wrap some tin foil over the wicks and then put some colorful socks over that. We also sell some fluffy covers which can fit over some common KEVLAR® Fire Heads.

A lot of people fasten wick onto their props with screws and to stop themselves from getting branded by a hot screw head they stitch a flap of KEVLAR® tape over the screw heads.

Because of how expensive pure KEVLAR® is our wick also contains other aramid fibers and fabric grade fiberglass. (not the kind that itches or stabs you. after all at HoP we work with it all day.). We mainly sell KEVLAR® Wick - Rope per meter or per ft (units depend on the language settings). Full Rolls can have up to 2,000 ft on them and normally get shipped around slowly by sea.

Cutting KEVLAR®

KEVLAR® has a very high cut resistance. Which means it will blunt even the most expensive scissors very fast. At HoP we use box cutters or craft knives which have replaceable blades. Do not ever use your mum's favorite dress fabric scissors or you will be in big trouble!

First purchase
"I just received my first purchase from homeofpoi.com and I am very satisfied, both with the price and the quality of the kevlar that I purchased. I am also very happy with the swift and useful support team. Another thing that stood out to me was how well the product was packaged and labeled, which makes it much more likely for it to arrive to its destination. I also love the idea of using discount codes, which makes shopping here a little lighter on my pocket, though my purchase was well worth the full price. I would definitely recommend homeofpoi to any fire art enthusiast as it's so far the best source of high-quality kevlar I could find, and that is why I rate it with 5 stars!"

Exactly what it was supposed to be
"I got my kevlar rope in, and it was exactly what it was supposed to be! The only downside was that I measured wrong and got too short of pieces. The business was great at keeping me up to date, and super friendly. Can't wait to try it all out!"

Great Product Does Exactly What I Want
"I tied this rope into monkey fists and use them as wick for fire batons. The material works great for holding fuel, and everything stays together perfectly. Make sure to leave time for delivery if you want to get a project done quickly, but everything showed up right when they said it would and was exactly what I needed for."
