CD 8 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. Varying amounts of 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.

Good wick sometimes

I like the way these wicks burn. They do well. But I've been having an issue with the wick pulling out of the base when I'm trying to setup the wick bar. This is a real issue and I'm seeing a 4%+ failure rate. Ugh!

These are great wicks!

I paired these with GB 464 soy wax and honestly I feel like the wick guide has been accurate. I've tried these on 2 different vessels that are around the same size. So far, as long as I trim the wick appropriately, I feel like it does a great job. Burns appropriately with good scent throw. Totally satisfied!

I absolutely love cd wick series; I've tested 8 different wicks over the years; and these wicks still-stand-all-on -their own. My candle business continues to soar because of these awesome wicks...which is a huge piece of candle making.

Love them!

These burn so well and evenly, I don’t have any problems with sooting, pooling, or the wick going out! Did notice they slightly increased the burn time from the unbranded cotton wicks I was using before (not from CS) so that’s a plus!

**I will say I got these for use with my Small Apothecary Jars and BW-910 which is a size up from the reference guide and unfortunately still ran into some tunneling so will have to be upsizing but that’s no fault of the wick - always test burn (I didn’t so I have a bunch of discounted candles now but that’s the name of the game 😅).

Yes and yes again!

I recently bought the ECO-8, LX-18, and CD-8 wicks to see which would be best for my candles. I am going to do 2 trials so this was my first. I used 6 oz yogurt jars from Amazon and 444 Golden Brands soy wax. ALL stayed lit which was my first good sign. I had them lit for 1 hr bc they are a smaller diameter so each candle has reached a full pool for the diameter of the jar, which was also a good sign to make sure they could be used in bigger jars. The LX-18 wick had ALOT of mushrooming I assume it was bc it was made for a bigger jar which it is, so I still need to run trial 2. There was only a little little bit of mushrooming with the CD-8 which is a super close second. With the ECO-8 there was no mushrooming at all and a small tilt to the wick as it burned which is what eco wicks do so over all all wicks passed, the only reason the CD and ECO are better is bc of the tiny to no mushrooming. My next test will be in my 2.8 diameter jar so we will see if the mushrooming is better with the LX and if all the wicks complete a full wax pool! I hope this is helpful
