These core-less wicks are made up of 100% bleached cotton in a tubular braid, with no chemical additives. Different wax blends will generate different performance standards with the same wick, so test a wick in the actual wax mix you will be using. These wicks burn clean and have a steady flame.
Cotton wicks should be used for taper and pillar candles, wire core wicks for votive, sand, and container candles, and Gelwick for all gel candles.
Small wicks are good for candles up to 2" in diameter, medium wicks for 2" to 4", large wicks for 4" to 6", and very large for 6" and up.
