I tried these wicks out as they’re one of the recommended wicks for the 16oz apothecary jars. I used two wicks like recommended and after about 5 1/2 hours of burn time the whole top wasn’t fully melted. The wicks are probably great for other candle sizes as they did self trim and let little to not smoke when blown out, however be warned with the 16 oz apothecary jars!

You may see some variation in the wax coating on the wick due to different coating processes. The variance of the wax coating on the wick has no impact on the burn of the candle.
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.
My candles went out after 15 min.

I do not understand why they turning like this

Hello, I'm new to candle making and am using the ECO 2 6" wick on 8oz jelly jar with parasoy wax. I'm getting a really good HT, I find the that I get a good wax pool in diameter and in depth. My only concern is the size of the flame. The flame is a bi tall t and flickers. The wick doesn't let out any soot but does mushroom a bit....Would you say this is a good wick or are there any wick suggestions you can give me?
other notes --- I used no dyes and 6% fragrance
Does the size of the flame matter if everything else is good (wax pool diameter and depth).
I've been using these, and they burn great!!!
I brought these because candle Science suggested this wick size for their 8oz jelly jars however the wick does not stay lit at all!! I’m so upset now i have to remake all my candles with another type of wick!
I used this with 464 soy wax based on the wick guide and I was not satisfied. The wick just burned in the middle part only and not the entire candle. It basically looks like a sinkhole in my candle. It seems like I should stick to using the ECO 10, 14 or 16 wicks.
can i use these wicks when needing 3 wicks in one large jar???
Using the wick guide I chose to try the ECO 2 6" in the 4 oz tin and I used Ecosoya CB-135 soy wax. It worked perfectly! The wax melted evenly and to the edge of the tin each time the candle was burning. See my review about the Ecosoya CB-135 soy wax.
I'm new to candle making and so I haven't yet experimented much with wicks but the was the one recommended for using IGI 6006 in a 2.5-3 inch container. That being said I used the medium straight sided jars from this site which say they measure 2.75 inches and I just barely don't have any tunneling problems. If the wick is 100% perfectly centered there is no tunneling. However if it is just the tiniest bit off center the wax pool doesn't reach all the way to one side. It works for my jars but I wouldn't use this wick for anything more than 2.75 inches. I also have some slight soot with this wick but since I'm new to candle making I'm not sure if that's because of the wick or if other things contribute to that. Over all though I think this is pretty good for starters
