Woodwicks?

I can't remember the name of the candle line right now but I have seen the candles with the wood wicks at Craker Barrel and they were a lot less expensive...I think I'm going to buy one just to see how the wick burns. :confused:

May be Old Virginia?

Yup WoodWick is a tradename for a brand made by Old Virginia. Dayna Decker has a patent on that particular type of wick (certain type of wood and certain flat shape) and she licensed them to Old Virginia. I bought one to try and it burned with a huge flame that put off a lot of black smoke. The flame was too big for my comfort, so I extinguished it and trimmed it down, but when I re-lit it the flame got just as big again. It made me a little too nervous with the flame that big in the size glass container it was in, so I put it out and gave up on it. I've tried a few other types of wood just for kicks but haven't found anything yet that worked well. I believe theirs are treated with something. It says on the bottom label "WoodWorks™ Candle, ecoWood™ technology licensed by Lumitique Inc.". I paid $24 for one of the 22oz ones (Sandalwood Clove, smells really good). You can't really hear the crackling unless you sit right close to it. HTH!

I look at those wicks and they remind me of woodwind reeds. I use to play a clarinet and the color and rigidness are exact almost. Reeds are made from cane which also make baskets. The type you find at craft stores. I would be curious to see how that burns.

I thought the same thing :) I was just looking at mine....(bought one yesterday at the mall), fun idea, but I think it is overrated.....they smoke and soot like a chimney!
