LX 28 6" Pretabbed 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.

Mushroom top

I love wick size and using them when making the candles but the do mushroom at the top every single time. When I trim it is just happens again and little black pieces get everywhere

This wick works perfectly in my 9oz jars, flame is strong and melts entire wax pool. I also like that it is easy to trim when needed because wick doesn't mushroom and split apart.
