This comes in packs of 12 wicks. This listing is for 12pcs wooden wicks.
Wood wicks are an innovative alternative to traditional cotton wicks. Not only do wood wicks burn cleanly and disperse fragrance excellently, they also generate subtle crackle sounds, creating a captivating acoustic ambiance. The soothing crackling sounds of wood wicks bring a whole new sensory delight to your candles. Our wood wicks are made from Maple. As there are only limited sizes, it can be more difficult to correctly wick your candle. If your wood wick is over wicked, you can alter the size by cutting a thin strip down the edge to reduce flame size. If it is under wicked, you can double up the wicks in the configurations shown below.
If your wick extinguishes during burning it is likely the blend is not right for the wick, and you may have to reduce the amount of fragrance. The wick should always be trimmed so that 5 mm or less is above the wax before lighting for the first time. Failure to do so can result in poor performance and the wick extinguishing during the burn. Experimentation is key!
Wick Size: Wood Wick L
Container Diameter: 52 – 76 mm (This is an estimate. Different waxes, fragrance and colours all effect the wicking of the candle. Trial and error is the only way to ensure correct wicking)
Wick Dimensions: Thickness: 0.2 mm, Width: 15.87 mm, Length: 101.6 mm.
Each wick is 10cm long and can be cut to height of container, allowing you to use a single wick for up to 3 containers but splitting horizontally. For smaller candle diameters, wood wicks can be split into two vertically.
