Wick Testing Coco Soy / EC26 Wax & CD Wicks

I'm currently testing Coco Soy / EC26 candle wax with CD candle wicks

About CD Wicks...
Stabilo, formerly knows as CD wicks respectively, the Stabilo wicks are coreless, non-directional, flat braided cotton 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 Stabilo series is used in many different applications and is especially compatible with the harder to melt viscous vegetable-based waxes.

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are CD 2 (double wick), CD 3 (double wick), CD 6 (single wick), CD 7 (single wick), and CD 8 (single wick).  I'm using our Cashmere fragrance oil at 9% fragrance load.  I will allow it to cure for 2 weeks before testing them. I will keep you updated! The other items I used when testing are the bowtie wick centering bars and our candle wick trimmers.

If you've found a combination that works for you, please feel free to share your results below.

I’ll be excited to see what your results are. FOr vessels that size I tend to need much larger cd and cdn wicks personally so far but I’d love to see if a 7 or 8 work for you!
