Item #: AWB23BX
#23 Gauge Bright Annealed Spool Wire
Box of 10 Spools
In Stock

This 1/2 lb. spool of wire is 4 inches long and 1 1/4 inches in diameter. The soft annealed wire is evenly wound back and forth to fill the spool. The end knobs of the spool prevent the wire from sliding off each end. This spool fits perfectly into your hand, the Kelco 102 Wreath Machine or KMG1 Garland Machine.

Spool wire (florist wire) is well fitted for jobs like making wreaths, bows, or other decorations. This wires' softness allows it to easily be wrapped or twisted and to stay put when pulled tightly. It has many uses when preparing Christmas decorations. Bright wire is good for most uses and cost about 10% less. It will rust easier than green wire. Green wire will not show as easily on greenery projects. It looks well when showing and will not rust as easily as bright. Dark wire is the most economical. It is of the same strength and quality as the bright but was darkened in the annealing process.

Wire size is determined by several factors; the coarseness of the greens, strength of the wreath maker, whether the work is being done by hand or machine and varying methods of production. General rules to follow are these:

#26 This is a very fine wire and can be used only with care for those finer wrapping tasks.

#24 To be used by not overly strong workers, lighter greens, use on the Kelco 102 wreath machine or KMG1 garland machine, making bows or wiring pine cones.

#23 For use by medium strength workers, coarse greens and on K102 wreath machine.

#22 For use by very strong workers, coarse greens or boughs, very large bows and generally heavy duty work. This can also be used with lighter greens requiring less wraps, therefore using less wire and labor.
