Medium 30 ply raw wick (non-waxed) – 100 Yard Spool.
Candle makers rely on a wax coated wick to quickly thread and secure to a candle mold. It lights quickly and burns efficiently. This cotton core wick can be used for pillar candles. It is compatible with 140 Pillar Wax, 140 Regular Wax, and 160 Hurricane Wax. This waxed wick can be with dark/light colors, heavy/light fragrance, high/low additives, or with no candle additive, candle dye and candle fragrance.
Medium 30 ply raw wick is recommended for use in 2.5″ to 3.5″ diameter molded paraffin candles.
This 10 yd. pack provides enough wick to make approximately 30 to 35 – 3″ x 6″ candles.
Also available in a 100 yard spool here!
When dye and fragrance are added to a formula, more energy is necessary to consume the matter and a larger wick may be justified. As always, test small amounts.
*We can only offer recommendations as to wick sizes and applications, but we cannot guarantee any certain wick to work in a certain application because of too many variables involved. The only way to determine the appropriate wick selection is by experimentation. Test burning will be necessary to determine the best wick for your candles.
