CANDLEMAKING: Wicks

TUBULAR BRAID CANDLE WICKS
Made from 100% natural cotton, bleached to remove oils that might impede wicking action. Always use real wick: plied cord, non-cottons, even flat braids will not work properly. And use the correct size. It is helpful to dip any wick in melted wax before using, so that when the candle is lit the un-saturated wick is not immediately consumed. We sell two tubular braided cotton wicks, one soft and one with a non-lead metal core. Wire core wick works well for any candle, but is especially useful for votive candles or any candle whose wick goes in after the wax has been poured.
Chart for figuring wick size
Since candles are not always round in cross-section, the diameter cannot always be figured exactly. Approximately is good enough. A thicker wick burns down a bigger circle of wax, consider whether you want a shell or no wax left as your candle burns. Wicks are listed thinner to thicker. This chart is for paraffin or beeswax. Soy wax is much stickier - go up about one size when you chose your wick.

LAMP WICK
For lamps, not candles. Made from 100% natural cotton. We carry two kinds, in several sizes. The round wick has a thick roving core and a braided exterior. The flat wick is a woven tape. Both are availble by the yard or on spools.
