Wick Testing Coco Soy / EC26 Wax & CDN Wicks

I'm currently testing Coco Soy / EC26 candle wax with CDN candle wicks.  The CDN series features a flat braided cotton wick with a special paper filament to promote maximum and consistent capillary action while ensuring a wick trimming flame posture. The difference between CDN wicks and CD wicks is a subtle but vital one. The CDN / Stabilo KST curls less while the CD / Stabilo curls more.  Overall, they tend to burn cooler then the CD wicks in most waxes. CDN wicks will curl at approximately a 30-degree angle.  The CD wicks curl to a 90-degree angle.  The lesser angle or curl of the CDN wick will result in a smaller melt pool or base.

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are CDN 2 (double wick), CDN 3 (double wick), CDN 6 (single wick), CDN 7 (single wick), and CDN 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! 

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