Atkins & Pearce Paper Core Wicks

A cotton outer braid surrounds an inner filament of paper. These wicks are commonly used in votives, pillars and containers and are constructed with 100% natural fibers.

The paper core wick produces a cooler flame than the cotton core but offers more rigidity.

Glossary of terms

Yield
Measured in yards of wick per pound in weight. The higher the yield, the smaller the wick and the flame and the resulting heat generated.
ROC
The rate of wax consumption in ounces by the wick in one hour. The higher the burn rate the more wax which is being consumed. Used to determine how well a wick and wax combination is performing.
