CD-12 Wicks - This is a favorite type of wick among candle makers. They are flat braided with a special paper filament woven in and around them. This is to help with an even and consistent burn while the wick trims itself. The CD series of wicks are used with many applications, especially vegetable base waxes.
The CD series has been cut to a specified length, primed with a high melt point wax (212 F) and has been crimped with a 20mm diameter x 10mm tall tabs. Wicks are 6" long.
I'm new to candle making, so I had called to have someone recommend the wick size for my container. I explained I was using a Natural Bee's Wax in a 4 oz, gave the diameter of the container at 2 inches and this is the size recommended. I made a few only to find that the pool size was too small and measured less than 1.5 inch. I tried to soften the Bee's wax one with Palm Shorting, another with Coconut oil and in both cases .... Same results. Just doesn't measure up!
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Christine! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. Beeswax can be fairly hard, so a larger size wick may be helpful! I would recommend trying CD-16 or CD-20 wicks. This Orange Blossom Candle Tutorial + Candle Tips blog post has a lot of great tips about candle making. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this!
