Slightly larger than the #2, the #3 square braid wicking is also recommended for 3" to 4" diameter pillars using paraffin with stearic acid, and beeswax pillar candles. A 8 ounce roll contains approximately 375 feet of wicking.

The wick is the pipeline that feeds the melted wax vapor to the flame by capillary action. It is important to choose the right wick so the candle will burn slowly with an even flame and will not drip or smoke. Selection of wick size is determined by the diameter of the candle and the hardness and melting point of the wax used.

Good performance

Received this size as a test project to make beeswax votive candles poured directly into the container. Dipped wicking into melted wax first to infuse wick before assembly with a tin plated base. Placed in container, then poured in beeswax, allowed to set up for 30 minutes, trimmed wick to 3/8" then lit wick. Formed a burn pool of approximately 1-3/4". Wicking performed well with no smoke and no soot in wax pool. Burned for 1 hour, then allowed to cool for 15 minutes, relit the wick and no problems encountered with relighting or smoking.
