Flat Braid Wick - candle-cocoon

flat braid wick

  • $1.00

Flat braid wick is also called classic, regular or ply.  It is commonly used in paraffin wax for tapers and pillars.  But some folks swear by it for beeswax.  This wick provides a slight curl when burning, which helps reduce carbon build-up throughout the candles life.  The main applications are dipped, poured and extruded candles. Wick is "raw" which means that it has not been chemically treated to enhance burn.  100% natural raw wicks.


  • Provides a slight curl when burning to reduce carbon build-up.
  • Designed for dipped and extruded candles.
  • Constructed from 100% natural fibers.

See guide below for help selecting appropriate wick style. Please keep in mind that these diameters are approximate and should be tested in your own wax formula.
