Yes I use cotton about 2mm thick, 28 kanthal is fine. Just make sure you soak it well with juice. You will also need non resistance wire for the legs.

how do you attach the non resistance wire to the kanthal. do you just twist it around?

I do a knot for mine here is the u tube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2dJU1CzM4k&feature=youtu.be
but twisting together also works whatever you find the easiest :)

Edit Utube link is not for Ithaka but this shows how to do it well.
