Stabilo16 wicks are amongst the best wicks on the market for scented candle applications. We use them widely in manufacturing here at Candle Shack and they are used extensively by professional manufacturers throughout Europe and the US. Due to their consistency and technical characteristics, they are often used in a number of applications, including jar candles and pillar candles. Formerly known as CD wicks, the Stabilo16 wicks are coreless, non-directional, flat braided wicks with a special paper filament woven around them. This configuration is engineered to promote maximum and consistent capillary action while ensuring a wick trimming flame posture. The Stabilo16 series is used in many different applications and is especially compatible with a highly scented paraffin/blended wax and a harder-to-melt vegetable based wax.

All wicks are 110mm long with a thin paraffin wax coating for stability. For wicks at custom lengths (MOQ 1000), please email

Wick Cl16

This wick created tunnelling so didn’t work for me but I’m sure it’s a great wick

Great with Ecowax C3

I have used these with Ecowax, and burn well. A have had a few wicks that have become loose from the sustainer, but easily fixed with pliers. Would use again.

Very good burning wicks

Wicks burn well, think they were too big for my containers and will purchase the next size down. Good wicks to use with wax blend I use.
