Traditionally Square braided wicks were used for beeswax candles but are an excellent choice for all types of waxes. Their open construction and special treatment make them a good selection for soy, beeswax as well as paraffin pillar candles. Square wick is designed to give you a curl when it is burned to minimize carbon buildup. This wick is constructed of 100% natural fibers.

#1 Square Braid wick is recommended for use in medium 2" - 3" pillar molds.

Please note this wick information is only to provide a starting point for your candle making and is based on our own testing using a variety of containers, pillar molds, dyes, fragrances and waxes. Individual testing is recommended as style of container, mold, addition of candle dye and fragrance can alter the wick size required.

Which Wick? Choosing the correct type and size wick is one of the most important steps to a great burning candle. While we give wicking suggestions, there are many variables, such as wax type, fragrance level, dye and style of container that can affect how a candle burns. In the case of some larger diameter candles, one wick may not be enough and multiple wicks are required for the candle to burn optimally. We recommend that you always TEST, TEST, TEST before manufacturing several to ensure you have chosen the correct wick for your candle. For accurate test results, start your test burn 12-24 hours after pouring and burn your candle for 3 - 4 hours at a time, allowing the wax to fully harden between burns, re-trimming your wick to the appropriate length before re-lighting.
