Parkin Fabrics in the UK has millinery wire. I've used 16 gauge wire for the percher hat and it was fine. Not sure if there is a difference between Australian wire and UK wire. I'm American. Here's the link to Parkin: https://www.parkinfabrics.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/index/?p=1&...
Perhaps call them up before purchasing. Just make sure it's not steel wire that doesn't bend. Hope this helps.
I found this when I was searching for wire, it says its 2mm wide like the 14 guage on House of Adorn. Probably best to contact them first, as I didn't order it. I have found finding wire not that easy if House of Adorn are sold out. I have also used Petershams a UK site for 16 gauge wire that House of Adorn didn't have. Do House of Adorn ship to the UK? I live in New Zealand and I have been sourcing what I need worldwide.
Kind Regards Janet
Hi Jayne. I use Baxter and Hart. They have a very stiff wire and a lighter one. Also Petershams have a range of wire in different weights. Hope this helps.
