For those who want to reenact olden day’s and make your own wicks

Recommended Posts

The things you find while looking for something else. Survivalists and reenactors shared how to make wicks from cotton, linen, etc. in this article. I knew salting the wick was a thing, but now I see borax and salt pretty much everywhere as a mordant. I don’t have any of those raw materials to try this out. Could be fun. 





Making a cord using a lucet looks like something i would never have the patience to do... if the apocalypse did occur it may be a handy skill though.
