Cottonwood™ Wick

Cottonwood is a braided flat wick constructed of 100% natural fibers. This newest generation of wick is specially engineered to bring the benefits of a wider based flame with the consistency that only a braided wick can provide. This wick is designed to get the heat of the flame closer to the edges of the jar creating the opportunity to use larger vessels or tougher to burn formulations and still achieve a high percentage of candle consumption.


  • Wide base flame.
  • Benefits of wood wick with consistency of braid.
  • Ability to provide various widths.
  • Unique look.

The rate charts provided in this catalog are meant to serve only as a guide for our customers to assist them in wick selection. Many variables exist in candle wax types, additives and formulations for individual candle systems. Final wick selection should always be confirmed through the customer's own testing process to determine if a particular wick is the correct choice for a particular candle system. Atkins & Pearce is not responsible for selections made by the customer using any of the reference material contained in this catalog. For optimal burn performance in specific candle systems, we strongly recommend that customers conduct exhaustive burn tests in their own burn lab and consider retaining samples for their future internal reference. The importance of candle testing and data validation cannot be overstated.
