Hi @jmspgh. Can't think of anything specific. If you haven't done so already, do some searches on here for wicks, there's lots of posts on the topic. Plus, some candle making supply companies have wick charts on their sites and the major wick manufactures do too.

 

For instance: http://www.atkinsandpearce.com/candle-solutions/ and https://wicksunlimited.com/wicks/ and there are others.

 

You can see more wick suppliers here: https://www.craftserver.com/articles1.html/candle-making-faq-archive/

Thanks, Laura.  I did do a search and found a lot of good info on wick size compatibility.  I guess what I am looking more for is general info on how the wicks are similar/different, what the benefits are for a certain type, etc.  I haven't been able to find good information on that yet but am still searching!  I am pretty new to this and one of the most confusing things for me has been sorting through all the different types/sizes of wicks and figuring out which ones to try.

You're welcome. Yes, proper wicking is certainly a challenge and it's not just you. Basically all the information you are looking for is out there, unfortunately it's not all in one place. LOL.
