WICKS & TABS

For safety reasons, all of our wicks are tabbed with a "long neck" (excluding votive wicks) which means that they will not burn all the way down to the bottom of your container; they will leave approximately 1/4-1/8" of wax.

  Important Note:
The burn rate is the amount of wax consumed per hour (in grams).  Burn rates are based on testing performed with straight paraffin wax with no other additives.  Certain types of waxes including low-shrink "One Fill" container waxes, Vegetable waxes and Candle Gel may require larger sizes than the charts suggest.  The wick size suggestions in the chart below are only estimates and are provided as a general guideline or starting point.  Your results will vary greatly depending on brand, type and melt point of wax, additives, fragrance, dye, container shape & size, burning conditions, etc. 
*We can only offer recommendations as to wick sizes and applications, but we cannot guarantee any certain wick to work in a certain application because of too many variables involved.  The only way to determine the appropriate wick selection is by experimentation.  Test burning will be necessary to determine the best wick for your candles!

Zinc-core wicks - Pre-waxed & pre-tabbed:
Wax primed, pre-cut and tabbed with 20mm round, 6mm neck tabs (unless otherwise noted).
This wick has a cotton outer braid surrounding a thin filament of zinc. Zinc cored wick produces the coolest burning flame and offers the most rigidity of all cored wick, providing support during pouring and burning.

HTP Coreless Cotton Wicks:
Pre-cut and wax primed with 212°F coating, tabbed with 20mm round, 6mm neck tabs.
These are flat braided cotton wicks with thin paper fibers intertwined. The result is a cleaner burning, self-trimming wick with additional structural strength, controlled curling and a hotter, more efficient flame.  Combined with a high melt coating, they are a great alternative in hard-to-burn applications. Flat braided wicks are designed to bend at the tip when burning, forcing the tip of the wick into the outer portion of the flame where it burns the hottest. This causes more complete combustion, leaving less carbon (mushroom) behind and less smoking!
