Thanks. I also bought some cotton rope from a chandlery ( sailing shop) to try.

Can you give any evidence that its usually made of fibreglass?

Apparently Fibreglass won't do this job as it won't soak up the fuel.

Although a nice answer. It doesn't answer my question of what the material is.

What about Silica - this is a material that appears to be used for wick. My dad said he used to use cotton wool to light a blow torch.

@Liam Yes, I would like to get one,- its a very simple item so I thought I could make one with the right material. Trangia only provide a full kit for this.
