WHAT IS IN A WICK SAMPLE KIT?

If you are reading this post, you have either ordered a Sample Kit, or are thinking of ordering one. If you are new to making wooden wick candles, some of the terminology .020, .030, “Crackling”, “Whisper”, “Booster” might be confusing, so be sure to read our blog post on Wooden Wick Types for clarification. 


To put it simply, just keep in mind that the decimal numbers are the thickness or width of the wick. 


Ok, so here is what you will receive in your sample kit!
