I used this wick as recommended with the 8 oz. Tureen Jars. I was burning one of the candles it had the biggest black smoke and the room the candle was burning in became super smokey! I'm so concerned because I just shipped out several orders using this wick and not to add the wick came unglued when burning. This is not a good wick to use.

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.

I started using these wicks with Cargill Naturewax C-3, and they seemed to bee fine at first, with great burning, but the wicks started coming out of their tabs when I put the wick bars on. Every other wick has held up well with the slight tug I give to put it in the wick bar, but these popped out constantly. It was really annoying having to pour the melted wax back into the pouring pitcher. The flames are very consistent, although they are prone to mushrooming and producing black smoke if you leave the candles burning too long.
When I used the wick guide to help me figure out what wick would be best for my 8 oz tureen jars with 464 wax, It suggested this CD22 and the flame was massive. Definitely need to downsize to maybe 20 or 18.
I have been having problems with my candles tunneling with other wicks I ordered from other sites, so I decided to try this wick, it did an amazing job ... but my flame was just too big, so I am going to order down a size and hope my flame will be perfect. But otherwise these wicks are great!!
