CD 6 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.

Not CD 6

I've been making votives over 3 years for my own personal use. I FINALLY decide to sale my creations at a craft fair and to my shock, every single votive goes out after 2 hours. I had a feeling these were smaller than CD-6 wicks I've purchased before, but shrugged it off. What a joke! I'm embarrassed and disappointed. I've never had a bad experience from you before, but I've wasted money on FO, wax and other components due to this mislabeled product. I'm looking forward to hearing back from you to get this resolved so I can make it right for folks who trusted me to deliver on my promise.

If someone can please reach out to me. I used this same wick and they are curling in, burning out and have a strong burn smell... It may just be something I'm doing. I'm almost sure I have the wrong size as well. I have a 5.5 container and I'm using igi6006. I could really use some guidance as I have tried this with a different wax.

CD 6 wicks work very well with the large 3 wick tumblers. My candles burn great, it has an even melt pool and it also gives a great hot throw. Me nor my customers haven't had any problem with the way they come together w/ the 464 soy wax is a great combination. And Ive used them for some time now. Thanks Candle Science

Wicks not PRE-TABBED :(

Sure, here's the review:

I recently purchased 2 packs of 6 6" Pretabbed Wicks, but unfortunately, they were not PRE-TABBED at all, which was a major inconvenience. Despite the product description clearly stating that they were pre-tabbed, it was disappointing to receive a product that required extra time and effort to make them usable.

As a consumer, I expect to receive the product that was advertised, and unfortunately, this was not the case. While mistakes can happen, I would have appreciated it if the supplier had done something to make things right, such as providing a replacement or a partial refund.

Overall, I was disappointed with this purchase due to the inaccurate product description and the additional work required to prepare the wicks. I hope the supplier can ensure they provide the correct product description to avoid future issues for other customers.

Very good wick

I love using this wick for my Soy wax! I bought the 12 pack. I went by the recommendation guide on CS and it was good from there. The Eco wick was good but burned a lot more wax than the CD wick. HT was excellent. This is my go to wick now!

The wick you need

Omg if you’re new dont buy on amazon. This is the wick you need for 90% of your vessels. Of course look at the wick guide and triple check! If you need help or you’re not sure contact support. Don’t be afraid to call, they’re the sweetest! If you’re hesitant to buy the 12 pack instead of the 100 I’m telling you I tested with alot of 8oz jars & tins and was relieved that out of all things wicks wasnt a problem lol if you’re new save yourself the headache and read about wax, wicks, & vessels! I ordered Monday & had my order by Thursday! Wowza!

Not too bad

I have never really had a major problem with these wicks. They burn great and work well. The only annoying thing, and I think it’s from shipment, is that they are sometimes crumbly. It’s not always, so it could just be a rough post issue. Otherwise great.

CD 6 6" Pretabbed Wick it's really bad

I have had a very bad experience with these wicks, they choke and end up turning off after a while. Very poor quality and I have used it for different sizes of candles and different percentages of fragrances. I bought 100 units and ended up losing that money and a lot of time.

I do not recommend them.

Frequently burns low

I've tried the CD 6 6" several times with container candles and GB 464 Soy wax, and will not likely use them again for one reason: they frequently burn low. No issues otherwise, but that one pretty much ruins their utility for me. Only one other review mentions this issue, so perhaps there is user error or perhaps different batches burn differently.

Perfect for the 17oz Containers!

I love these wicks. I haven't had any of the issues that some of the other people have posted about with them pulling away from the metal wick tab. I've probably used over 1,000 of these and have never had an issue! I found through my testing that some of my fragrance oils need the CD 8 in the 17 oz tumbler, but overall I think the CD 6 is a really great start for those jars. No mushrooming, excessive flame, or sooting. Test, test, test. But honest to goodness perfect for 8/10 oils.
