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.

The A&P Square Braid Cotton Wicks are raw wicks. They are not primed, cut or tabbed.

*A&P Square Braid Cotton Wicks are tested and sized based on use in a Straight Paraffin Wax with No Additives. Wicking is based on the WIDEST area diameter of the candle you plan to make. This is typically not measured at the opening unless the container is perfectly straight up and down. Beeswax candles will require MUCH larger wicks than paraffin wax.

Square braid wicking is sold raw and unprimed. Choose from 100' size or a 1 pound spool.

5/0 Square Braid Small 1.75 - 2"
2/0 Square Braid Small 2 - 3"
1/0 Square Braid Medium 3 - 3.25"
#1 Square Braid Medium 3.25 - 3.5"
#2 Square Braid Medium 3.5 - 3.75"
#3 Square Braid Large 3.75 - 4"
#4 Square Braid Extra Large 4 - 4.5"
#5 Square Braid Extra Large 4.5"

*We can only offer recommendations as to wick sizes and applications, but we cannot guarantee any certain wick to work in a certain application because of too many variables involved. The only way to determine the appropriate wick selection is by experimentation. Test burning will be necessary to determine the best wick for your candles! For testing, we offer for purchase, sample packs that contain 5 of each size wick within a series.

Well, I'm in awe. I called the number; representative didn't know anything abt candles except the price & referred me to tech, whose number I had to call. Tech never called back & I reached them later. Tech said the info regarding candle wick sizes r only for paraffin & not beeswax; had I not been experienced or had I not asked, I would have bought the wrong size. Again, I asked abt the price as being $4.00 for 100' of #2/0 wicking and not per foot & was told $4.00 for 100' spool was correct price. I typed in the info in order to register/log in to get a price on S/H. The amount for the wicking became $15.50 for 100' before S/H; not happy abt the misinfo. After having gotten this far, I don't think I want to know. I did also learn that if there is an out of stock item (this, since Oct), they will not restock items until after the 1st of the year; if they don't have a certain amt of other items that are also out of stock, they don't order. Crazy. No, I don't think ur business is all that great. I've wasted an hour of my time. I hope my review isn't erased; there are many questions people should ask b4 they buy. But, I will say, ur terms & conditions are quite thorough.
