A&P Square Braid Cotton Wick:
Bleached Square Braid Wick was originally designed for beeswax candles. Today, this wick is used in all types of candle systems. This unique construction combined with our chemical treatment processes make it an excellent choice for waxes that are highly viscous when molten, like beeswax and vegetable wax. Bleached Square Wick is engineered to curl while burning, minimizing carbon build-up. This wick is constructed of 100% natural fibers and is finished with chemical treatments to improve burn qualities. Square Braid was originally designed for beeswax candles and is still favored by candle makers as the top choice for making beeswax candles.
