Wicks and Candle Supplies
Atkins and Pearce manufactures square braided cotton wicking designed   specifically for the use in beeswax candles. They utilize a " bleaching " process to whiten the wicking and remove impurities through the use of a salt solution resulting in a cleaner burning wicking. No bleaches or peroxides are used. For more information on self trimmimg wicks please visit Atkins and Pearce.
