Square braid wicks were designed for the viscosity of beeswax candles but they can still be used with soy, paraffin and vegetable waxes too. Our wicks are raw, untabbed, and lead-free. Use for up to 1/2 inch diameter beeswax candles.
What's the difference between #5 and #5/0 wick?
The main and only difference is size. The #5 wick thicker and is suitable for larger candles, while the #5/0 wick is thinner and is suitable for smaller candles. See the second product photo for a direct comparison.
Before use, soak the wick in molten wax of your choice. This process prepares your wick for use in candle making. Soak in molten wax until bubbles stop rising to the surface. Results may vary. Experimenting is strongly recommended.
