Lead-free, quality wicks for all your candle making. Australian plaited wicks for moulded candles, Australian cotton 'square' wick for more viscous beeswax candles. Then the ready to use, assembled waxed cotton wick attached to a stabilizer. Our larger stabilisers mean the candle burns completely to the base in containers.

 

 

All our glasses and containers now have inside dimensions listed. Using these measurements you can easily choose the right wick from our range.

 

 

The recommendations with each glass are based on our test burns. Due to many variations we suggest these as a guide only.
The amount of fragrance you use, the choice of wax, the ambient temperature during the burn, the hours you have your candle alight - all these will influence which wick should be used.
Please test all your candles prior to selling or making large runs.

wood wick   Wood wicks: North American Hardwood in flat and round profiles

    Wooden wicks are used in container candles for their strong flame and their crackling sound. They are versatile, you can use alone or as a multi-wicked candle. Cross them for a larger flame and great effect. The new addition, round True Flames, have the combination of cotton and timber to be really a true flame.

 

 

   

The previous wood wicks were primed with oil and cut from hardwood.

That company went out of business, so we now have a softer timber that needs to be primed with your melted wax.

We tested all the wicks, they do get going very well though some may go out once in the process. They burn well once the timber is saturated with the molten wax moving freely up the grain.

Timber is a natural product and does not wick quite as well as cotton wick, which we have been able to design and plait to the best conditions. There is nothing that can be done with the grain of timber, knots, grain diversion etc.

If we alert retail customers to this natural fluctuation, they will understand their candle better.

 

All our glasses and containers now have inside dimensions listed. Using these measurements you can easily choose the right wick from our range. The recommendations with each glass are based on our test burns. Due to many variations we suggest these as a guide only.

 

 

The amount of fragrance you use, the choice of wax, the ambient temperature during the burn, the hours you have your candle alight - all these will influence which wick should be used.  Please test all your candles prior to selling or making large runs.
