flat braid wick
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.
