LX 20 6" 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 cotton 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.

Wick mushroom

I use this wick for my burn test and it had a big mushroom I’m using coconut soy wax and 9% fragrance oil and my jar is 8 ounces should I reduce the fragrance oil to keep it from mushrooming

I purchased this because it was recommended by the wick guide for my 8oz tins. The melt didn’t reach the sides of my tins. Very disappointed. And there was a lot of mushrooming. I used 7 different FOs with this wick with no other additives and all did the same. I just purchased the LX 22, hopefully I will have a better experience.

Used this wick because it was recommended by CS for ecosoya wax and the straight sided libbey jar. The flame was dancing like crazy and it was mushrooming soo bad.

Hi There! We're so sorry to hear you've been having some trouble with the LX 20 6" Wicks in your recent burn tests! In general, excessive flickering or mushrooming can be an indication that the wick is too large for this specific combination. However, there are several factors that can affect the way a candle burns, and wick size is only one part of the equation. Fragrance and dye usage, environmental conditions, and even burning habits can all affect the overall burn profile. A member of our Support team has reached out to you via email today to see how we can help!

Worked perfectly

I tried these and Eco 20 for a double wicked 4x4 inch candles with IGI 6000 wax. These burned so much better than the ECO! So glad I have found a perfect wick for my candles!

I tried this wick size according to the wick guide recommendation. For an 8 oz tin container w/ Comfort Blend wax the wick did not burn the wax enough to reach the sides during testing.

Dependable Wick

We have used the LX 20 since the very beginning. very dependable and versatile size wick. If you plan to make larger candles (4" diameter), I would recommend using two wicks of a smaller size (LX 18 or LX 16), depending upon the wax you use. LX 20's will not always burn to the edge, or may take a while to do so if used in a wide candle, depending on the wax.
