I acquired several cards of "candle wicking yarn" in a hodge-podge of craft supplies -- is it wicking for candles that simply needs waxing?  Or is there some craft tecnique called 'candle wicking' that it is intended for??  Embarrassed

Thanks in advance!

Not an expert, but I would say it is candle wicks for sure. In one of my candle making episodes I found out you can get either waxed or unwaxed wicking. The unwaxed appeared to be just cotton string.

Okay...I'm giggling, but not in a mean way  Smiley

Are you sure it's not for this kind of candle wicking:

Granted, this craft did originate as something pioneers did with candle wicks....

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

 Undecided booger -- thought that might be the case!  Two of the cards are pink, and I could not figure out why anyone would want to color coordinate an element only to set it afire...

Guess I'll have to go out and properly shop.  Tongue

Thanks for the help!   Smiley

"Candlewicking is a form of embroidery that is primarily based on the colonial knot with other embroidery stitches used to add detail."
Sorry the yarn is not for candles.
