About Length of 3/8 inch (10mm) Braided Kevlar ® Rope
Our fire wick is based around the durable Kevlar ® organic (para-aramid) fibre, enhanced with our special blend of non-irritant clothing grade fiberglass yarn.
The continuous filament fiber we use is about as good as it gets when balancing absorbency, strength, durability, fire rating and user comfort.
Specifically woven into our commercial grade, high absorbency, flameproof textile, with increased absorbency and all wefts (horizontal threads) doubling back on themselves for greater durability (especially in edge wear/fraying).
In fact, the weave pattern and tension has been carefully controlled to balance the opposing properties of durability and soak-ability.
The result is an optimum capillary effect for fuel soakage and transfer out to the flame whilst still ensuring excellent flame and abrasion resistance and overall strength.
It is also lightweight, and has good flexibility, drapability and non-stretch characteristics.
Rest assured our wick does not contain any asbestos (often used in fire proofing), which is known for causing cancer when inhaled.
Neither does it contain any sharp or skin burning metallic thread.
Metallic threads are sometimes added to give a sense of strength and durability, but we have found the thin metal fibers become brittle with the heat and break to create a hazard to users – especially if performing wraps or fire eating.
Yes you could buy cheaper, however more fire performers prefer our fire wick for its added performance-based features and for their personal safety.
We believe this wick to be the top choice for fire performers, and since we manufacture in bulk, we can pass on this top quality wick at an affordable price.
We keep several tons in stock and supply many other respectable fire tool manufacturers, throughout the world.
We are constantly testing alternative 'mixes' and will always aim to bring you the best possible wick for your performance needs.

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."

Very Pretty GIANT
"I've just started learning poi so I didn't realize that these would be SO BIG! They are beautiful though and fly really well. I haven't used them much since I'm still in the head-bonking phase of learning and these are weighted with chain rather than a tennis ball. My only complaint is that sometimes the flag gets wrapped around itself. Nothing can be done about that I guess except learn to spin better. ;) I'm really happy with these though and I'm looking forward to using them more as I'm able."

"I first wish to express my amazement with the service accorded by Home of Poi. I was extremely appreciative of the shipping and order information that was sent to me. But what truly impressed me was the speed with which my order was processed and shipped. I believe I placed my order on a Wednesday afternoon. Later the same evening I received and E-mail telling me that my order had shipped! I about fell out of my chair! I absolutely love my new flags. They are beautiful to look at and a joy to work with. I love the weight of the chains. It turns a fun past time into a fun work out. It also makes it very easy to keep the flags moving. Wonderfully made. Altogether I was thoroughly pleased with my experience at Home of Poi. I will most definitely be ordering from you again in the future. Thank you for everything. Heaven Bless."
