So I just started building coils. I wrapped a bit of hemp twine in a gutted protank coil head and stuck that in my Davide tank. Works great!! Now I just received my Igo-L and have been trying to get the perfect coil from either cotton, or hemp wick. Cotton was OK but the problem there was it was too loose. Now, I just wrapped a hemp coil, and this happened to it, after about an hour of vaping:

See the coil there is pretty hard, it is getting way too toasted, and now tastes pretty bad.
My intuition and research says that it is wrapped tooo tight, and wont wick properly. Im wondering if anyone can help shed some light onto this issue for me?
I wrapped 30 guage kanthal around 2 or 3mm hemp twine folded over on itself [forgot exactly which] with 1mm in the fold as well. I did about 6 wraps and came out with a 2.3ohm. Worked great but started to give me no vapor and poor flavor after a while.
Incidentally, it randomly dropped to 1.1ohms and now wont fire on my Vamo. I was previously vaping it at 3.0-3.2V
Ive searched the forums and the "Just Hemp" thread and couldnt find much information on this.. any tips on properly building a great hemp coil??
Thanks much in advance!!
