ECO 14 6" Pretabbed Wick
About the ECO Series
ECO wick is constructed from natural flat cotton threads interwoven with paper threads that produce a rigid structure for easy pouring. The consistent flame and slight curl of ECO wicks work well with natural waxes and ensures an even burn.
ECO wicks are lead and zinc free.For help choosing the right wick for your candle, visit our wick guide.

@Honest Candles, There has been a complete line of ECO wicks available here for a while now. I started making candles a year ago. I purchased the entire line of ECO wicks as I make candles in multiple containers. I prefer to double wick my status jars using the ECO 2. They burn so even and cleanly that the jar almost looks new when the candle finishes burning. You really do have to experiment and see what works best for your wax, fragrance load and dye. When adding the standard one ounce of fragrance per pound of GB464, my ECO 2s perform flawlessly in the status jar, but I don't use dye and I am careful not to go over the fill line. So, try the ECO 2 with the status jars and see if that works for you too. Maybe purchase the ECO wick sample kit so that you can run some tests and see what works best? It's all about experimentation right?! Hope some of this helps. Good luck!

I have been using the Eco 14's with the GB 464 as recommended for over a year. I use this wick in containers 3-3.5" in diameter. I have used the CSN 26 in containers 3.5-4". There is now a recommendation for the Eco 16 instead and I am currently testing them. I am not sure how long the person from the previous rating comments has been making candles but I read a lot on this site before I started and so far all advice has been very helpful and accurate. The Eco 10's I use in 2.5-3" containers as well as 4" containers I place 3-4 of them depending on how much wider each container is. I am very pleased with this line of wicks - granted, they are all I've used so I have no comparisons but I certainly have no plans to change.

Excellent wick. Perfect size and burn for the 16oz. Mason jar. Excellent product.

Did candles science change their wick sizing guide?? I don't remember seeing eco 14 being recommended for 3-3.5 diameters. In fact I just spent a good amount of money on another size eco-16 cause that was the previous suggested wick size. I had also bought the eco8 cause that was the only size step down, But now they are showing a eco14. I am so confused. BUYER BEWARE: Do not but the eco8 or eco 16 for the status jars that they sell on this site. They absolutely do not work. The 8 doesnt create an even burn pool and the 16 completely coats the glass container in black soot. I feel like I wasted so much money now on wicks that were previously suggested but obviously now have been changed cause they don't work. Does anyone use the eco14? And what works for anyone who has purchased the status jars. I go back and forth with the golder464 and cbxcel wax.
