That's the down side of making a really top-quality product, you dont need to have a range of it, just the one top-line thing. So don't let the score fool you, this really is the most excellent wicking I have come across. When I made a few candles using the coloured wax sheets it was so easy to use. No prep work, just cut it to length, roll the sheets around it and you're done. So simple.
I figured it would be just as simple when I made some moulded candles using the wax pellets and I was right. Since I didn't have any moulds I decided to make one of the easiest type of candles possible to someone who lives near a beach, and made sand-moulds instead. They turned out pretty well and the wick performed really well, right to the bottom of the candle.
Another excellent KIWI-made product from this company, well worth looking into. Get your local craft club involved and buy in bulk for best prices.

How simple could it be?! After having a play with a candle-making kit and seeing how much hassle it can be to prepare good wicks for use, I was wondering how they managed to prepare wicking that was flexible enough to wind onto a roll, yet still suitable for use... I need not have worried.

When it arrived, this wicking looked more like string, but a test candle made using it, with no further preparation at all, just straight off the roll, showed me this was indeed top-grade cotton wicking. I didn't even need to dip it in wax or anything! To make the test candle, I simply cut a small strip off one of the ready-to-use sheets of foundation wax and warmed it in front of a small fan heater. Once it was soft enough to work with, I rolled it twice around a small length of wicking, and dribbled a bit of molten wax over the exposed wick using a lighter and some leftover wax fragments. After it had set (which was pretty quick, it being winter and all), I lit the wick and viola! it burned with a true and steady flame, first shot!

As the wick burned down, it melted the wax foundation and soaked the next few millimetres of wicking, making it burn-ready without me having to do anything more stenuous than sit back and appreciate the glow. This inspired me to have a play with some of the other colours available, and now have quite a range of pretty candles to give away as gifts.
