Guide for florist wires

Florist wires are used in a wide range of arts and crafts projects. They come in a variety of gauges. The gauge indicates the thickness of the wire. It is important to know what gauges means, so that you can select the correct florist wires for your project.

Floral wire comes in ranges between about 5 gauge - about 0.201 inch (5mm) in diameter to 32 gauge about 0.008 inch (0.2mm) in diameter.

The higher the gauge number the thinner the wire.

To give you an indication of stiffness, the 5 gauge (4.5mm) wire is really stiff and hard to bend. Whereas, the 32 gauge wire (0.20mm) is very floppy.
