This unique construction combined with the 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 treated to improve burn qualities.
