this is the only candle suggested for my 3.25 diameter candle with Nature C-6 wax. Unfortunately this burned too hot, the mushrooming was out of control and the smoke on extinguishing was high and I needed to open a window. In this case my guess is to wick down at least 2 sizes here but since this is the only suggestion I am not sure.

You may see some variation in the wax coating on the wick due to different coating processes. The variance of the 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.

The wicks give a even burn but I don’t like the mushrooming and they smoke a lot .
Hi there! I'm sorry you're having difficulty with these wicks mushrooming. A member of our team has reached out to you via email to better assist!
I always use these wicks and they rarely tunneling me, the hold up there shape when the wax drys and works perfectly with dye! Highly recommend!
I've bought these wicks before for my pillar and container candles and everytime I light one the flame is 4 inches long? I sold 8 candles to someone and now I'm affraid this will happen to them. I used the ones I already had first with no issue then I made myself one and the flame is huge, and I've been making csnd lb es for years. They mushroom right away too, I've never had this issue before. So now what should I use for 9oz straight containers of soy blend and for molted wax blend for 3x4.5 pillars
Can I use these with beeswax since it said natural waxes??
Hi! For beeswax, we've had the most luck with the ECO wick series. However, you are more than welcome to test the CD series with Beeswax!
I used the wick guide and was expecting great results having used "craft store" quality wicks and wicks purchased from Amazon prior. Not happy. Testing candles resulted in tunneling. Now I have way too many wicks I can't use.
Hi! The wick you will want to use will depend heavily on the type of wax you'll be using and the diameter of your container but additives such as fragrance oil and dyes can also affect how the candle burns. If you are experiencing some tunneling, wicking up a size may be a better option but if you would like to let us know more about your materials at email@example.com, we'd be happy to help!
I started using these wicks with my Soy wax candles using the Golden Brands 444 wax in 3" glass containers and they burn amazing.
soy needs a good hot wicks and this is great and pools the wax right to the edges with a clean burn. from time to time I do have to cut off the mushrooming but overall i'm very happy with it.
