Wood Wick 1
Use Wood Wick 1 to add an extra dimension to your soy candle and enjoy an ambient ‘crackling’ sound with our range of wooden wicks. These American Softwood wicks are designed specifically for use in soy wax and all wood used in these wicks is sourced from renewable resources grown by eco-friendly suppliers in the USA. The wood is not bleached or treated with any harsh chemicals and a natural oil is used to assist with performance and burning. Each wick is supplied with a metal sustainer.
In wooden wicks we use many different woods..but mostly oak, cypress , cherry or maple. All are chosen for their sustainability.
Material: American Softwood
Wood wick 1 is suitable for use in a container measuring up to 60mm inside diameter. However we strongly recommend you conduct your own testing as there are many variables that affect the way a candle burns.
The best “crackle” is achieved with a fragrance load of between 6-8%
Glossary of wick specifications
Diameter Guide: This is a suggestion for the diameter of the glass jar, tin, bowl, or whatever type container you might use this wick for. Always measure the internal diameter (across the inside of the container) at the widest point.
Height: The height of the various size wood wicks varies and they can often be cut to make two shorter wicks.
Pre-tabbed: Each wick comes with a separate metal tab (sometimes called a sustainer) for attaching the wick the wick to the jar. The tab also acts as a safety device as it stops the candle from burning all the way to the bottom of the jar. Tabs are 8mm wide and 6mm high.
Pre-coated: All wicks are pre-coated with a natural oil to help with initial lighting of the wick.
