i'm torn about these wicks because i've been ordering them for a while now and have always been quite happy, but i had a bunch of faulty wicks in my last order. After making a batch of 1000 candles, customers started complaining that their wick would not stay lit. I use the same brand for our larger candles and the same batch of fragranced wax is used for both the small & large candles, so i know this isn't an issue coming from the wax or scent, but from the wicks. It's very disappointing to have customers return a candle and ultimately it's a huge financial loss.

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.
These wicks are great. They work beautifully for my jar candles and save me time.
I had a hard time finding the right wick for the status jar, using IGI6006 wax. After testing many, I found the perfect wick. I use 2 of these wicks for each candle and it burns exactly as I want it to. I personally have not had issues with the wicks lighting. By now, I've sold over a hundred candles with these wicks and have not heard back from any customers that they have had problems. I won't use any other wick for my candles.
I have been using this wick for a while now. I use the same method each time. I use eco cb advanced wax, eco 4 6" pretabbed wick in a 16 oz mason jar. I melt to 175, add the fragrance at 170 (2 oz per pound). Cool to 134-138, single pour. Then leave alone for 24 hours. After the first 24 hours I cover with a lid and move to a room to cure for 6-7 days. My customers love it! EXCEPT NOW this time I made the wax the same way and used Seas Mist along with a Fresh mint fragrance in a aqua blue candle. The candle would not stay lit, even pouring the melted wax off still the candle would not stay lit. The two customers I made those for have returned them. not sure if it is the wick or the wax.
I recently ordered these for a second time and sadly the new wicks I got are not lighting in the recent candles that i have made. I'm really sad about it as this is the first time its happened so far its caused me to loose money on the candles sold this week.
These wicks are great! they are good for all my smaller diameter candles. This is my go-to wick for MOST of my candle making orders. Candle Science is by far the most helpful website and I Have absolutely no problems with this wick ! GREAT CHOICE!
