This is the cotton wick thread, that's right ladies and gentlemen. So pull up a chair and share your experience with the different types of cotton out there. Since after trying all the different wicks and having my preference land on cotton cheese cloth as my favorite.
What kinds have you used? (Cotton twine, butchers twine, yarn, cheese cloth, gauze, cotton balls)
What were your findings with the properties of different types of cotton?
And Finally which is your favorite and why?
Apart from the initial thread
Now Today i was at the dollar store and found this (the pic), says 100% cotton twine. Wrapped a coil and tasted funny, so I did a burn test and the burn test was more consistent with a cotton/synthetic blend which was scary. When you burn test cotton, it's supposed to burn easy then smell like burnt paper and the char left over should be soft. Well after the burn test the charred part felt crispy. Anyone else ever have a problem like this?
