We pour about 250,000 tealights a year, ran out of normal eco 1 wicks we source from another supplier, so we ordered a few thousand here to carry us over. Paid about twice as much as normal but we were in a pinch. By far these are the worst wicks we ever had to work with. Will not make that mistake again.

The ECO 1 1" wick is recommended for soy tealight candles.
ECO wick is constructed from natural flat cotton threads interwoven with paper threads that produces a rigid structure. The rigidity of this wick makes it an easy wick to use when making soy tealights.
This wick produces a consistent flame with a slight curl which ensures an even burn.
ECO wicks are lead and zinc free.For help choosing the right wick for your candle, visit our wick guide.
I have used these in GB444 soy tealights with much success. I have not had issues with my tealights going out. A full melt pool is achieved without (the container that the tealights are placed in) getting too hot. ECO 1 tealight wicks throw (scent) great and trim themselves with hardly any debris in the melt pool. They look long, but if you light one as is, in my experience, they don’t soot and they don’t produce a consistently tall flame. They burn for over three hours, but I haven’t burned mine for more than 2.5 hrs at a time. Be sure to carefully straighten each wick by hand to center it after pouring. I have burned tealights with slightly off-centered wicks and they burned fine. Be sure to be gentle when straightening wicks to minimize the risk of spilling wax, especially using aluminum tealight cups.
They're perfect for tealight candles. My only complaint is that a lot come bent since they're sent in a bag, and are hard sometimes to get straightened out again.
I use these all the time and love them!
I buy 100's of these and love them.
