CD 4 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.

Finally! Wicks that works!

Used different size CD wicks for different vessels and they performed perfectly. Mushroomed a little but I'm adding a small note for my customer's to trim when necessary. Wax melted evenly.

I bought these as a recommended wick for my 3 wick jars. I tested it out & to my surprise the wicks are just to small for this 3 wick jar. Tried a second jar thinking I did my measurements wrong & when I burn it the flame is so low it ends up burning out & doesn’t melt the whole candle! I’m not sure this is even a right size wick for a 3 wick jar I don’t recommend at all what a waste of money!!

Great wicks!

I've recently went through re-resting my entire candle line with multiple wick series to find the best fit. CD is by far the winner - great throw & great qualities. CD 4 works great in my 4 oz straight sided jars so that there is a smooth melt pool, without getting too hot. There is usually a small wax hangup on one side of the jar until about the third burn, then it comes down & can still create a safe burning condition without a crazy hot jar.

Forming Mushroom

I followed the wick guide for my 8oz straight jar, wax IGI6006 with 8% FO but still gives the mushroom. I've tried the LX14, ECO 4 and CD 4 and 6. AT this point should go a wick down to CD2? I mean this is frustrating even after following the guide from candle science.

Uneven/inconsistent wicks

Unfortunately, like the other reviews, these wicks burn unevenly and inconsistently.

Inconsistent Wicks

Inconsistent wicks repeatedly from CANDLE SCIENCE. We have been ordering from them for months and all of a sudden, the 100 bags have been ALL DIFFERENT sizes. When we brought this to CS attention, they insisted the wicks were the same, that some just had more wax coating then others. BUT we scraped all of the coating off and they were ALL way off. So much so that one could have easily been a 22 while the other was a 6. That's how dramatic the difference was. We wasted thousands of dollars because of this. So disappointing. The wicks are the most important part of the candle, you would think more quality control would go into this.

Perfect for the large salsa jar!

These are perfect for the large salsa jars from Candle Science, but make sure you’re double wicking it, as that particular jar is a bit wider at the top! But, (2) CD 4’s provide a nice even melt pool, little to no soot, and a wonderful hot throw!

I'm not sure what's going on....

I've bought from Candlescience for years. The last FOUR (100) packs of wicks that I've bought have had different sizes mixed in. I thought I was crazy at first until I started selling in a 3 wick size. Two will be the proper wick and the other seems at least two sizes larger (in wick thickness and flame). Has anyone else had this problem? or am I just so incredibly lucky that I've had this happen on four separate occasions? Quality control needs to improve during packaging. How can I do burn tests if I don't know what wick I'm using!? Have always loved candlescience, but I may have to start getting my wicks elsewhere.
