You want kevlar string - most juggling retailers will hopefully sell it.

The problem is that it kinda pot luck getting some good string. There doesnt seem to been any kinda brand name string around. II genraly get mine from firetoys but each time the string has diffrent qualities than the last.

As others have said, it's something you should be able to get from most juggling vendors.  check http://www.jugglingdb.com/vendors for a list of one in your deliverable area.  As for brands, I don't believe there are anything specific, unless it's all done by FyreFli.  It's quite fat string though which isn't helpful most of the time, but you shouldn't have too many problems.

Pricy stuff though unfortunately.  If you feel like going through the effort, get some kevlar wicking and unravel as much of it as you can in one long continuous strand (it's possible, just time consuming) and then braid your own together.  It's too weak to use on its own unfortunately.

Oh, and maybe wet the string a little before you use it too, has a tendancy to catch alight if it gets hot enough.
