This is a quality flat oil lamp wick made of pure cotton by a firm in Yorkshire, England who have been making wicks for over 100 years.

The price is for one 2 foot long and one and a half inches wide wick
(24 inches) 1 1/2"
though I can supply any length you need just email me

If you are in UK I only charge one postage payment for up to 4 lengths

Please do NOT use in garden flares or torches - they need fiberglass wicks.

Also please note that in England we call it paraffin in USA you call it kerosene. What you call paraffin in USA is a liquid wax and is NOT suitable to burn in oil lamps
