CD 24 6" Cotton Pretabbed Candle Wick
Choose a Variant

Product Update:
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.

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.

didn't fit my glasses

initially for my glasses bought here, according to the advice of a CS consultant, I bought a CD 22 wick, but it turned out to be small, then I decided to increase the size of the wick so that the crater did not form, but the CD 24 was not enough size for a glass with straight walls, I disappointed, now I don’t know whether to order CD 26 or immediately CD 28, mushrooms also form

Poor Tabs

The tabs aren't secure....wasn't time making sure these are secure since a few of them pullout as i was putting them into the wick holders.

Please in the future make sure these are secure and don't send faulty wicks to your customers

Just what I needed

For my large 14oz candles I needed one good wick not 3 small. This works perfectly. Yes there is mushrooming if the wick is not cut correct and can produce smoke if blown out. Luckily my candles come with a wood lid. So the smoke is a non issue. This has saved me a ton of time and money from the previous wicks I’ve used.

These wicks are a totally disaster. They smoke a lot and the flames are too high, even when I trim them to 1/4 in. I purchased a bag of 100 and used only 3 out of the bag. I would like to return these to get my money back because they are not safe. I believe they could cause a fire. They are a total waste. Very disappointed!

Works for me

I've been using this wick size for the last year and so far it works well. I use the 8 oz candle tins and Cargill C-3 wax between 6% to 8% fragrance load, depending on the fragrance, some do mushroom more than others but this wick has been working pretty well for the most part.

So I had purchased these wicks for 8oz candles as my blend is soy and beeswax to assist in the hot throw. My only complaint about them is that if you stick to the regular wick trimming rules, expect a ton of mushrooming and a high flame. They also burn quicker due to the higher cotton content but they do work very well to increase the hot throw. Make sure you trim the wick fairly short to help minimize the mushrooming and soot production.
Would recommend for mason and straight sided jars (10oz+).

Smoking and Mushrooming

I purchased these wicks on the suggestion of the Candle Science website, and my candles have been smoking and mushrooming terribly. They are definitely unsellable - I have to stop and trim the wicks every 30 minutes, and still the sides of my candles are black with soot.
Do not recommend - going back to the CD 18, even for these larger sized candles.

Trim Wick Solved Smoke Issue

Initial burn resulted in a tremendous amount of smoke. We trimmed the wick shorter than normal and the test burn performed well with no smoke or soot.

Didn't perform well

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.

The wicks give a even burn but I don’t like the mushrooming and they smoke a lot .
