Atkins & Pearce Paper Core Wick

Constructed of 100% natural fibers, Paper Core Wick is often used in candle types such as votives, pillar, and containers. Although similar in design to Cotton Core wicks, this wick series provides increased rigidity. The Paper Core Wick series features a cotton outer braid surrounding the inner filament of papers.
