Atkins & Pearce Square Braided Wicks

This is a square braided, bleached cotton wick, structurally having a very open matrix and slight curl when burning to minimize carbon buildup. 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.

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.
