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.

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.


Clean Burning

Great wick. Have used 100s of these and they are perfect - clean burning and wick stays on the metal tab after wax is poured. Love it.


Love them

Works perfectly for my wax and containers. I have had great results with the CD series

Could be better

We have used these wicks for about a year now. We've had a lot of problems with these wicks pulling loose from the metal wick tab after pouring wax. We have to be very gentle on setting the wicks otherwise high chance of wick coming undone and the candle being rendered useless. Also had issues with occasional flames burning too low or one of three wont stay lit. However when they stay put and burn, they are great for our type of wax and containers.

I really wanted to love these because there was absolutely no mushrooming, and the melt pool was perfect, but the smoke and soot this wick produces compromises the scent of my candles. I use a coconut/parafin wax and test in a 2.75 in straight sided jar.


My Go-To Wick Series & Wick Size

I use the CD series for all my 3-wick glass tumblers. I have a high fragrance load of 10%FO in IGI 6006. The CD Wick Series is my go-to wick, and the CD6 is my go-to wick size. When crafting a new fragrance and using no candle dye this is my starting wick size. It never fails. I get a clean, even burn and about 60 hours of burn time. My test environment is around 1,400 sq ft and the entire room is full of fragrance.
