LX 12 3" Pretabbed Cotton Candle Wick
Choose a Variant

Product Update:

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 LX Series
LX wick is a specially braided flat wick which maintains a slight curl when burning. The curl moves the tip of the wick into the hottest part of the flame, which helps to minimize or eliminate carbon buildup (mushrooming), reduce smoking, and provide a 'self-trimming' effect, which creates a very stable and consistent flame. LX wicks are lead and zinc free.

For help choosing the right wick for your candle, visit our wick guide.

Conveniently secure your wicks with Wick Stickers (large) or Wick Stickers Pro.

I double wick my jars with your LX14 6 in. and they work fine but the LX 12's 6 in. work best because they slow the burn just right and the melt pool is perfect. Problem is, I have to get my LX12's from another supplier and I cannot stand the way they package. It's like a 4 yr. old grabbed a pile of something and shoved it into a bag. I decide instead to use your LX14's because I love CandleScience and they way you package means more to me. With all the said, could you please offer LX 12s in a 6 inch length?

I was getting the tealights wicks that was recommended. Not enough ambiance, it burned in a very small flame. I have to say I was not happy with it. Someone did a review to use the LX12 3" and it works very well with my tealights burning and my floating candles. Thank you! I use 464-45 Golden Soy wax. Works amazing!!

I agree with others, the LX 12 needs to be in offered in a 6". I've made votives using 4625 parrafin wax with a 6-7% fragrance load and sometimes color added, sometimes no color either way the LX 12 is not the right wick, however the LX 10 is perfect. It would be great if candlescience would carry the LX 10

Bring back 6"

Please bring back the 6" LX12, we use them for 2 inch pillars, if we need them for votive candles, we can cut them!
