Kevlar Thread, String, Cord & Yarn
Kevlar Thread, String, Cord, Yarn
Renegade has a nice selection of threads and twisted cords and yarns to make your own fire props.
- Thread made of pure Kevlar is used for finishing small prop wicks, like fans or fire-eating wick heads.
- Cord, both blended or pure Kevlar, is for finishing rope ends so they do not fray for large props, such as rope darts, fire snakes and other rope fire props.
- Yarn is a Kevlar fiberglass blend that can be used for making fuel reservoirs inside wick heads.
Pro tips (intermediate to advanced fire dancer)
When finish-sewing edges of 1/8-inch-thick flat wick, you should use 1/16 cord or thick thread using a carpet needle. Do not sew it with a continues stitch. Knot off each pass through the fabric so that if the cord burns or wears through, the stitching will not unravel.
