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.

Gets the job done

Never had a problem with these.

I use this wick because it was recommended but it caused so much mushrooming. I am still searching for a wick that will work for me.

Hi there! We'd be happy to help. Our support team has reached out to you via email!

My candles are made with a combination of 444/415 (about even mix) Soy wax with about 3-5% FO, depending on the fragrance. It goes into the Libby tumbler (about 3 1/4 inch diameter). I typically use CD 20, but noticed that the flame gets a little big, so decided to try the CD 18. Though the smoke/flame was good, the melt didn't reach the edge of the glass. I would recommend the CD 18 for a container that's smaller than 3 inches, and will be using it for my smaller mason jar candles. I will return to the CD 20 for the Libby containers. Hope this helps!


I purchased these wicks for the Libbey Jars using the 464 Soy Wax as recommended by the wick guide but the melting pool was not able to reach the edges of the jar. I am very disappointed since this was a recommendation from CS.


I purchased these wicks for the Libbey Jars + 464 Soy Wax as recommended by the wick guide. It did not work out and caused a huge dangerous flame. There was a lot of mushrooming + soot. I recommend a small wick.

perfect combo

These have worked perfectly with the straight sided tumblers (8 oz). Perfect combo!

Not good.

Soooo I got these wicks for my 8oz glasses which were recommended. After about the 5th burn it kept blowing out by itself. It's extremely frustrating. I don't know if it is because of the shimmer and color I use in my candles but I am no longer a fan of this wick.

Hi! Adding shimmer and color can affect the wick so you may need to go up a size to get a better burn!

Great wick!

I make candles that are heavy with scent. I use the soy 464 wax and 2.5 to 3 inch containers. No tunneling. No smoke. I also use the CD 12 with my candles. Both burn great!

I have always used these wicks with my 12oz. Status jars. Ive always gotten a full melt pool with one exception. Whenever i use the diamond neon colors my candle will tunnel bad and eventually flame goes out and will not stay lit. That happens with all jar sizes with appropriate wick. So if i use neon diamond color ill def be wicking up next time. Also, they do mushroom terribly the closer you get to 4hrs and when you blow out, lots of smoke.

Just okay

I'm a beginner candle maker and I am trying diff types of candles. For the particular candle I'm referring to now. I used the 12oz tumbler jar with one of these wicks. The wax did not burn to the outer edge. The hot throw was not that great. Not sure if its b.c I added wax frosting to the candle. Will test again but with double wicks for the 12oz jar



Not too sure how I feel about these. They were recommended for the kind of wax I would be using for my candles. These wicks are very hard to trim. I've used scissors and a wick trimmer and they would not budge.


After a lot of test and experimenting - these are the only wicks I use for 8 oz jars. Previous wicks didn't melt the wax to the edge of the jar. These wicks work great!

I like these wicks..

These wicks are great, it lasts for a while. The only thing I’ve noticed is slight mushrooming after the first few burns and it’s would pop and leave black specks all over the wax and candle tin.

Good wicks

I used these wicks for soy wax in a 8 ounce glass jar with FO 1% per pound and they are amazing! Burns perfectly, great hot throw and easy to use.

new wicks
