Four Gorgeous Svelte Hounds & Our Wicks

Stiff competition for the warm glow of this shiny Aga range cooker..

Thank you Lorcan for reviewing our wicks and for sharing your lineup of pups! "Well cut. Minimum fume on the light up. Works great, prompt delivery"

Here are three things that you may not know about your wicks! Everyday is a school day...

  • The 6" measurement on a wick is not the length of the wick itself, but the burner diameter.
  • The wick is really only used to get the Aga range cooker started. Some people imagine the wick burning all the time, like a candle, but actually once the cooker is up to temperature the oil vaporises and it is this vapour that ignites/burns. If the wick was burning directly you would need to replace them a lot!
  • Our wicks are pre-cut with little notches. These notches are space to line up with the holes / oil chambers. On some burners there are three on the inner ring, some there are 4, and some have 5! The notches aid the flow of your oil. They do not need to line up exactly. Once the oil has flowed, your vapour will light, and you will cosy!

Katy Boys

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
