Candle Wicks & Wicking
Wick Selection can be confusing and overwhelming at first. Choose the wick type of you need according to the wax you are using and type of candle you are making.
How to Purchase Wicks
All of our wicking is available raw (plain or uncoated), primed (wax coated) and pre-tabbed in stock sizes or custom assemblies. We have organized our wick selection by wick types which should be matched with the wax, soy or gel product that you are using. Unfortunately there is not a wick available that is good for every application so you will need different wick sizes for different size and types of candles.
Choose your wick type
Please read through our product descriptions and usage charts for a guideline. Each wick description will give recommendations for wax types and candle sizes that can be used as a basic guideline in your selection.
Raw - plain with no wax coating on an 100 ft. or 500 ft. spool. Perfect for the candle maker who prefers to prime their own wick or make their candles with unprimed wick.
Pre-tabbed Wick Assemblies - Primed, cut and tabbed for the ultimate in convenience. Our pre-tabbed, primed wicks are incredibly convenient and fast. A must for any candle maker! Just attach your wick to the bottom of your jar and pour your wax.
Custom Wicks- Custom pre-tabbed wick assemblies are also available and are a great option for candle makers who need a special size wick that is not available in our stock wick configurations. Minimum order for custom wicks is 1000 pieces per size and style.
