Get to Know Different Types of Wooden Wicks
Here at makesy, we offer several different types of wooden candle wicks. The best way to determine which wick will work best for your project and/or candle-making business is to use our wick selection guide and conduct a test burn with our sample kit.
In case you are curious about all we have to offer, here is a run-down of all our wicks, the best wooden wicks for candles:
ultimate wood wicks
The ultimate wood wick is a combination of our crackling wick (various thicknesses, widths, and lengths available) combined with the newly developed engraved booster going vertically down the center of the crackling wick. This is ideal for various waxes to promote better and more consistent flow, that will provide an amazing throw and provide more consistency.
natural crackling wood wicks
This is our premier, all natural crackling wood wick, made from native, sappy fruit trees, sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified mills, and manufactured in the USA. This wick is available in a variety of thicknesses, widths, and lengths for use in all wax types. Great for 100% paraffin and coconut waxes.
single-ply whisper wood wicks
Our all-natural, single-ply whisper wood wicks are made from a sweet mid-west softwood and are sourced from FSC-certified mills. The whisper wick is lighter in color than all of our other wicks and when combined with the original crackling wooden wick, together they create a unique visual effect.
crackling booster wood wicks
The crackling booster wood wick is a combination of our crackling wick (various thicknesses, widths, and lengths available) combined with a 3/16” crackling wick booster adhered vertically down the center of the crackling wick. An ideal option for vegetable wax blends, beeswax, and candles with a heavy fragrance or dye load.
whisper booster wood wicks
Our all natural, single-ply whisper booster wood wicks are made from a sweet Mid-West softwood and are sourced from FSC-certified mills. The whisper booster wick is lighter in color than all of our other wood wicks and is combined with a 3/16” crackling wick booster adhered vertically down the center of the single-ply whisper wick.
tube & spiral round wood wicks
Round wood wicks are (in our humble opinion), the most unique and innovative wooden wicks on the market. We offer both tube and spiral styles. Made from sappy fruit trees and sourced from FSC-certified mills and made in the USA, round wood wicks provide a gorgeous circular-shaped flame. Alone, they will produce a 2-2.5” diameter melt pool and work well with all wax types.
x wood wicks
X wood wicks create a visually unique point of difference in your candle creations and form a playful cylindrical flame when burned. X wicks come with some assembly required. They feature two pieces with careful cuts that fit uniquely together to form the finished X wick.
