This candle wicking is a square braided, bleached cotton wick, structurally having a very open matrix and slight curl when burning to minimize carbon buildup. This wick is constructed of 100% natural fibers with a chemical treatment. Its open construction and chemical treatment process makes it an excellent choice for waxes that are highly viscous when melted, like beeswax and vegetable wax. Square braided wicks were originally designed for beeswax candles but can be used in all types of waxes.
