    I use ebay. You can get 100ft rolls of Kanthal for around 8-12 bucks depending on the gauge.

    Cotton, you can buy at any craft store.

    I buy my wire from TEMco directly as opposed to their eBay store.
    Cotton can be picked up from anywhere- doesn't have to be special cotton.

    Yep, definitely hit up eBay for wire. The seller Temco has great prices and fast/free shipping.
    You'll want Kanthal A1 (or maybe nichrome), with a Vamo I would get either 32 or 30 gauge kanthal.

    Cotton can be bought locally at places like CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, etc.
    The main thing to look for is that its 100% cotton (not blended).
    I would recommend either sterile or organic cotton (either rolled or balls).
