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 are made out of fiberglass yarns that are either braided or knitted.
