Thank you NoDak- the preassembled ones usually have a zinc center and I was trying to avoid that. Looking more for all natural fiber but having trouble with the right size.

I use 2/0 wick for both tealights and votives. For tea lights, I give the wick a quick dip in beeswax and attach one of little metal clips that keeps the wick vertical while it burns. The beeswax coating keeps it stiff enough to push through the hole in the candle.
