Braided using a variety of the finest glass yarns available. Our Fiberglass wicks are used in everything from outdoor patio torches to designer oil lamps. Fiberglass being in-organic will out-last cotton based wicks. Fiberglass is also used for environmental sampling applications, passive lubrication of machine gears and fragrance dispersion units. Some designs of fiberglass work great with the bio-fuels.
Wick diameters are approximates. Some designs will "expand" slightly after coming off of the knitters or braiders used to make the wick. Fiberglass wicks being in-organic last longer than cotton, paper and wool wicks. Fiberglass wicks are made out of fiberglass yarns that are either braided or knitted.
