Wooden wicks are used in container candles for their wide flame and their crackling sound.
True Flame wicks are another innovative option. Being a wooden wick, this style also crackles slightly when burning.
True Flame wicks are always used in conjunction with a cotton wick and tab assembly. This combination burns with a beautiful and stable circular flame. The flame stays 'true', surrounded by its wooden fence. This combination is powerful - any mushrooming or curling is contained within the confines of the circular wood wick, keeping the flame steady and 'true'.
We have done extensive testing and love this wicking combo. The True Flame wick is made in 1 size only, so it is the addition of the cotton assembly that will influence the melt pool diameter.
