CD 10 6" Pretabbed Candle Wicks
Choose a Variant

Product Update:

You may see some variation in the wax coating on the wick due to different coating processes. Varying amounts of wax coating on the wick has no impact on the burn of the candle.

About the CD Series
CD (Stabilo) wick is a flat braided cotton wick with paper threads woven into the cotton. The reinforced construction of the wick is designed to ensure a consistent burn with higher fragrance loads, especially with softer, more viscous natural waxes. The superior rigidity of CD wick allows the wick to stand up straighter for easier pours and keeps the wick upright in a deep melt pool.

Note: Any carbon buildup should be removed once the wick is extinguished.

CD wicks are lead and zinc free.

For help choosing the right wick for your candle, visit our wick guide.

Conveniently secure your wicks with Wick Stickers (large) or Wick Stickers Pro.

Great wicks

I love CD wicks, they surpass any other wick series I've tried in 7 years of candlemaking. Trimming & proper candle care is important for customers... these provide a perfectly clean, soot free burn if basic candle care is followed.

I had high hopes for this one

I have been using ECO8 6" for my 16 oz. mason jars using 464 soy wax. They work well just leaving a little left over wax residue on the side of the jars along with some mushrooming so I figured I would try the other recommended wick for the size of jar; the CD10 6". After burning for a little over an hour there was still not a full melt pool.

I'm salty

Ok, so I use beeswax, not the pebbles, but totally fresh made and compressed beeswax. I started off with CD 8 for the 4 oz tins, and it took 3 wicks to burn the whole thing. I don't mind, but I wanted a single wick. So I got this and a size larger, and this literally made no difference. The diameter of the wax burned was the same. So if you plan to use bees wax, I'd test every other size. Granted I know ECO is recommended, but I liked the materials these were made. Might try ECO someday.

CD10 Wick with Paraffin/Coconut Wax

I went with the recommended CD12 with the new Paraffin/Coconut Wax in the 21oz, 3” diameter Status Jars… A tad too big. A lot of mushrooming, soot and it wasn’t trimming as it should. I do like the wax though so I’m going to try the CD10. Previously, I used the Comfort Blend Wax which is also wonderful, although messy with LX16, high fragrance load (over 10%) with 2 drops of color and my candles burned nonstop (it was in a very safe place) for every bit of just under, literally by 1.5 hours, 7 days!! I hope the Paraffin/Coconut lasts as long with the CD10. Burn tests coming soon! If it doesn’t work out I’ll go back to my previous wax & wicks.

As the recommended wick for a small 2.2” -2.69” circumference (4oz tin can) for the 444 soy wax is the CD 10, I found that wick not the best during my testing. I tested CD 10, CD 12, Eco 10, Eco 14 and Eco 16. CD 12 and Eco 10 had a better melting pool. CD10 was the least success at a full melt by an hour of burn time. I’m still not pleased with cd12 or Eco 10 as it is not melting through entire circumference unmelted wax around the pool. I will try Eco 12 next once it’s available again.

These wicks totally upped my candle-making game!

I had been using a "standard" 6" wick I found on that colossal online bookseller/retailer. The wicks were doing a good enough job, but I hated seeing the wax collect on one side of my containers and/or the wax tunneling. I played around with the pour temp and tried to better center the wicks. No improvement. Then I took a chance with Candle Science's CD wick series and BOOM! the burn was amazingly even. I use the CD 10, 14 and 20 as my candle containers are cut beer, wine and liquor bottles--all different sizes/diameters. These wicks have greatly improved the quality of my candles. Thank you!

Perfect for Mason jars

I bought these and ECO10 for use in standard Mason Jars. About 3” diameter. I burnt them side by side. Would not recommend the ECO. Tall flame and lots of soot. The CD10’s are great though.

Great in candle tins

Using GB464 with a 12% fragrance load in the 4 oz CS candle tins, I was a little worried this wick might be too much. It may have burned a *little* fast but I got a full melt pool at around 90 minutes. The flame didn't stutter or smoke. There is a slight mushroom on the tip of the wick but it seems like it burns itself out really well without causing any issues. Prior to buying these to try, I saw that several people said the CD8 was too small for the 4 oz tin so I figured I'd try this one and step down if necessary. Glad I did!

I use the CD series for all my 3-wick glass tumblers. I use a high fragrance load of 10%FO in IGI 6006. Most of my candles have a high liquid dye load as well, above 10 drops/lb. The CD10 wicks burn great, highly fragrant and are slow-burning. My pours are 17 ounces and I get around 50-60 hours per triple wicked candle.

Excellent wick

Excellent wick, I use it for three-wick candles. My candles are 17.5 ounces and I get over 60 hours of burn time using these wicks. At first, the melt pool will develop slowly but the fragrance through is great, I can smell it thought my entire 2,800 sqf house.
