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.

Assistance Needed

I’m just starting to do research as a hobby making candles and I started out with the soy wax using the tins. I recently purchased the C6 wax based on research and reviews . I wanted to create a soy candle blend with great fragrance load and slow burn. I used the 9oz straight sided jars with CD12 wick with 9% fragrance load. Only a hint of dye. The pool melt takes about 5 hours to reach the outsides but my issue I’m having is my wick keeps mushrooming. Can you offer advice how prevent this ? Is it the dye? Or my pouring time? This is need to me but I’m doing a lot of testing before I make decision on candle containers etc.

Great Wicks

I purchased these wicks as CandleSciences recommendation for my wax type and jar size. My initial thought when burn testing was that they were too large for my candle and burned wax too fast. Before jumping to conclusions, I started weighing my candle before each burn and after burn (sometimes hourly) to determine the actual burn rate. These wicks are burning my wax at a rate of 1oz every 5-7 hours. Within 2.5 hours burn time, the candle has usually got a melt pool that reaches all sides of the jar about 1/4in deep. As the candle burns deeper, all wax is cleanly melted from the sides of the jar. I think these wicks are great for my candles (Soy wax 464, 9oz straight sided glass jar).

Perfect for 464 soy

These are great wicks with a consistent burn and excellent hot throw using 464 soy and a 8% fragrance load. Make sure you trim them to 1/4” before each burn and instruct your customers to do so too… these don’t need a lot of head to catch a flame and build a pool without drowning. Do your tests with your vessels, as different materials retain and distribute heat differently, but the CS wick guide hasn’t failed me yet!

These are my go to wick!

I absolutely love these so much, the perfect flame. No soot and I pair it with my 464 soywax.

great wicks for 3" but shipping cost led me elsewhere now

I am using these in 464 soy in the straight sided jars. they work great with 8% Fragrance. I have since started buying on another site due to the shipping here was actually double for me to buy the wicks now.
