Pima Cotton Sliver(ANGEL HAIR) for Attys
« on: June 12, 2014, 08:32:39 AM »
My next adventure will be trying this.  I'm not a fan of cotton balls or Cotton yarn - (P&C from Walmart).  Dont like cotton candle wick either.    Cotton cheesecloth isnt too bad.

But this sounds better and I shall give it a try.  Here is link for those who are interested


Pima Cotton (Supima) is considered the finest cotton in the world. The sliver is long fiber and as smooth as silk. 

A sliver (rhymes with diver) is a long bundle of fiber that is generally used to spin yarn. A sliver is created by carding or combing the fiber, which is then drawn into long strips where the fiber is parallel. When sliver is drawn further and given a slight twist, it becomes roving.


NOTE - 1st link removed as they sell clones - new link has now replaced it


NEW LINK For Cottonman - Pima Cotton will now be known as ANGEL HAIR

I was just reading the same in Facebook... It seems that it works good with WTA juices. The guy was saying that it wicks really well with thick juices.
Unluckily for me it's in the US and it would be a bit expensive just to try...

Thank you my friend! Also because the other shop sells the Caravela clone and I prefer not to buy from someone that sells them  ;)

Thank you very much my friend! Much appreciated, but actually I will first check if they ship abroad, because I think that also a friend of mine could be interested, so that we can share the shipping ;)

I am going to try some also. Thanks Dspn for the heads up!  *pirata*

It may still be a bit off, but I could bring some with me also to Portugal if you guys want more, and the shipping is horrendous.

In the same style, we have in France this
http://www.alittlemercerie.com/laines/peloton_pour_e_cigarette_coton_nat_de_fonty_n0_ecru_coton_bio-1960715.html

At the beginning, it was not for vapers, and she change the packaging for vapors (less than 50meters :) )

It is good, no parasite flavors, but hard at the beginning to fill with juice...  It is also easy to use as it is 1mm in diameter.. like fdv to use

I can send some if someone want to try...

S8 the guy from the website just unswered me. I saw that from the website you could buy 4oz or 8oz, so I asked for a quotation for that. He told me these prices including shipping to Italy:
$21 for 4oz
$31 for 8oz

So shipping abroad is about 11-12$ (I guess it depends on weight)

Yes Andrea. They are similar, and I have hesitate to post this one on your post :)

Yours come from USA, mine from Peru.
