There are several different types of candle wicks we offer here at The Wooden Wick Co. and the best way to find which wick will work best for your project and/or candle making business is to use our Wick Selection Guide and conduct a test burn with our Sample Kit. But in case you are curious about all we have to offer, here is a run-down of our wicks, the best wooden wicks for candles:
THE SINGLE-PLY CRACKLING WICK
This is our premier, all natural single-ply wooden wick, made from native, sappy fruit trees, sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified mills, and manufactured in the USA. This wick is available in a variety of thicknesses, widths, and lengths for use in all wax types. Great for 100% Paraffin and Coconut waxes.
THE SINGLE-PLY WHISPER WICK
Our all natural, single-ply Whisper Wicks are made from a sweet Mid-West softwood and are sourced from FSC-certified mills. The Whisper Wick is lighter in color than all of our other wicks and when combined with The Original Wick, together they create a unique visual effect.
THE CRACKLING BOOSTER WICK
The Crackling Booster Wick is a combination of our Crackling Wick (various thicknesses, widths, and lengths available) combined with a 3/16” Crackling Wick Booster adhered vertically down the center of the Crackling Wick. An ideal option for vegetable wax blends, beeswax, and candles with a heavy fragrance or dye load.
THE WHISPER BOOSTER WICK
Our all natural, single-ply Whisper Booster Wicks are made from a sweet Mid-West softwood and are sourced from FSC-certified mills. The Whisper Booster Wick is lighter in color than all of our other wicks and is combined with a 3/16” Crackling Wick Booster adhered vertically down the center of the Single-Ply Whisper Wick.
THE TUBE WICK
Tube Wicks are (in our humble opinion), the most unique and innovative wicks on the market. Made from sappy fruit trees and sourced from FSC-certified mills and made in the USA, Tube Wicks provide a gorgeous circular shaped flame. Tube Wicks can be used in conjunction with a ¼” width Crackling Wick inserted in the center to create more heat and are set up with our standard Flat Wick Clip. See “How do I make a candle with a Tube Wick?” in the FAQ section of our website. Alone, they will produce a 2-2.5” diameter melt pool and work well with all wax types.
THE SPIRAL WICK
Spiral Wicks are the newest variety to our collection of wooden wicks. Made from sappy fruit trees, sourced from FSC-certified mills and made in the USA, Spiral Wicks also provide a gorgeous circular shaped flame. They create a 3-3.5” diameter melt pool, work well with all wax types and are set up with their own special circular wick clip.
