8 oz spool of wick.  

Square Braid:  This wick was originally designed for beeswax candles but can be used in other types of wax.  Its open construction and special treatment makes square braid a good selection for viscous material (beeswax & vegetable waxes). Square braid wick is designed to give you a curl when it is burned to minimize carbon buildup. This wick is constructed of 100% natural fibers with a chemical treatment.

Cotton core:  This wick is for applications such as votives, pillars & containers. Cotton core wicks produces the hottest flame of all the cored wicks and will help maintain carbon buildup. These wicks are constructed of 100% natural fibers.

* Note: Selecting the right wick is one of the more challenging aspects of candle making.  This chart is meant to be a guideline only, based on the wick manufacturer's guidance and our own experience.  If you're making a lot of candles, we recommend making a test candle first to make sure the correct wick was selected and the candle will burn properly.    If made properly, a candle will meet the following criteria: 1)Consistent flame size, 2) Good relationship between the candle diameter and flame size, 3) Well-formed wax pool, 4) Candle burns with minimal smoke, 5) Minimal wick blooming or "mushrooming" while burning, 6) Minimal dripping.
