Shay and Company is constantly updating our product line based upon your requests. We have a variety of wicks for you, all made from natural fibers, and all designed to be used in plant based waxes. We offer some at the pre-cut 6” pre-tabbed size, then we offer some in bulk so you can cut them to your own length. We also offer the wick tabs that can be used with our wicks AND with any wick you may have purchased elsewhere. Raw wicks are not coated, so they will be soft when you purchase them. You will need wick holders with all our wicks as they will soften when the wax is poured in. You will also need to cut each based upon the height of your candle container.
Cottonwood Wicks- yes, we have a great alternative to wood wicks! No more educating your customers on how to take care of their precious wood wicks, now you have an alternative that is 100% cotton and much easier to use. c This wick is designed to get the heat of the flame closer to the edges of the jar creating the opportunity to use larger vessels or tougher to burn formulations and still achieve a high percentage of candle consumption. Customer review of cottonwood wicks is that they have an excellent heat throw!!!
We offer two sizes of Cottonwood Wicks- the 20 and the 75. This offers you a smaller wick, designed for tealights, smaller diameter container candles, votives, etc. Or you can use two of these to do a 4-5.5″ diameter container. The Cottonwood 75 has a slightly larger burn pool, allowing you to use a single wick in larger containers, or double these to do even wider ones.
Features of cottonwood wicks:
-wide base flame
-benefits of wood wick with consistency of braided material
Cottonwood 75- 1.5” flame height, 4.25” burn pool. Ideal for large candles up to 4.25” in diameter.
We also sell the smaller Cottonwood 20 wood wick alternative.
Raw wicking means that it is not pre-cut, nor is it dipped in anything. You can cut these wicks to whatever length you would like. If you want the material to be firm for when you set it in your candles, simply dip your cut wicks in your wax blend.
Raw wicks are sold in 12.5 feet, 50 feet, 250 feet and 500 feet increments.
We also sell the wick tabs to affix to the bottom of our raw wicks, and the wick stickers to adhere all our wicks to the bottom of your container.
