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.

Mushrooming and soot

I wanted to love this wick as it burns well with my 464 soy wax container candles but i just couldn't. It would burn well for about 2 hours then it would start to mushroom and give off smoke and soot would fill the container. I first thought it might have been the fragrance or the fragrance load but i tried it with two different fragrances and two different fragrance loads and got the same results. Won't be purchasing this one again. I'll stick with the ECO series

They Mushroom after the first hour

I dont like this wick. It started to mushroom after the first hour. Too much carbon is being created. So the wick is being swallowed up by the wax. I was hoping that it would not do that because it burns so steady.

75 candles down the drain.

I have to explain to my friends and family, who I am giving my candles away for free to now, because I have no idea how I would sell these, how to use my candles. Light them first, watch the puny wick curl into itself like a limp finger, get extinguished by the wax pool, then pour out the wax thats pooled up, what a waste, so that you can relight it and hope it doesn't happen again. I've wasted so many candles using these wicks. I'm massively disappointed, and I'm switching the eco 4 now, I guess.

I recently discovered these wicks and love them. I use IGI 6006 wax, 3 inch container, and 10% fragrance. There is a full melt pool, great HT, and steady flame, much better then the Eco 8.


New to candle making, tried many different wicks and this is the one that I find works best. Will continue to use only this one.

I spent a lot of time using the Eco series , and had nothing but trouble and inconsistency after nearly a year of testing. I switched to these and absolutely love them, the flame stays a consistent size throughout the entire burn of the candle , and the scent throw is great. I just could not get the eco series to work for me, I use the 464 wax and a 10% fragrance load and these wicks seem to do the trick. I think I’ll be permanently switching over .
