This is the cotton wick most commonly used in rolled, dipped and poured candles. It is 100% cotton and made specifically for beeswax candles.
The spools are initially measured by weight, so the length is approximate, give or take 5 meters.
Choose the wick size for the candle diameter you want to make.
|Finished candle diameter||

*If your candle smokes, the wick is too large. If it drips, the wick is too small.
Roll - Use square braided wick with honeycomb beeswax sheets for rolled candles.
Dip - Cut the wick to desired candle length, and dip in melted beeswax.
Pour - Cut wick to desired length and attach a candle wick tab to one end, place in appropriate container and pour your own pillars, votives or tea lights.
Square braid wick is directional. Roll the wick between your fingers to find the flat side. Find the "V" pattern and ensure it is facing towards the bottom of the candle.
