Bright insight with our wood wool firelighters guide

Wood wool firelighters are placed together with a lit match ready to light up the pile

Ah yes, lighting fires. A chance for us all to connect with our inner pyromaniac and go to town. How can something so simple be fraught with so much chaos? Our enthusiasm to ignite the blaze often leads to overzealous lighter fluid squirting, burning enough old newspapers to eviscerate a small hamlet and donning a gas mask to set fire to something super toxic just because it’s lying around. Three words for you: wood wool firelighters . These babies are the perfect way to start any fire. And let us tell you why.

What are wood wool firelighters?

If you’re picturing something white and fluffy: that’s not quite what we’re talking about. Wood wool firelighters are 100 natural and fully sustainable firelighters made from wood wool and wax. Wood wool is basically a mass of fine, soft wood shavings. Then these ‘bundles’ are covered in wax to create the firelighter. Basically, they look like miniature wrapped up pieces of straw. No chemicals. No accelerants. No impurities. Just a highly effective and 100% natural firelighter

Wood wool firelighters are super versatile

Basically if you need to start any kind of fire, wood wool firelighters can do the job with ease. From the grill to the fire pit or multi-fuel stove.

Simply pop some wood wool firelighters alongside your fuel and you’re good to go. 

How to use wood wool firelighters

Ok ok; this is beyond obvious stuff here. But we can’t take any chances. Simply arrange your charcoal, wood logs, compressed heat logs, dry twigs or whatever fuel you’re using – then add a few wood wool firelighters into the mix and light them up. Ensure that once lit, the flame from the firelighters has direct contact with your fuel source.
