- Constructed from long strand, tight braid, and specially treated cotton.
- Designed to be used in pillars, tapers, decorative, votives, and tealights candles.
- Engineered to minimize soot and inhibit carbon deposit and afterglow.
Our HPSP 272 candle wicks are primed in a high melt point wax, are pre-cut to 6" lengths, and are tabbed using a 20mm round wick tab with a 6mm neck.
Note: We recommend testing new wick sizes when making any modifications to existing candle recipes or making new candles. Burning characteristics can be altered by changes in wax, fragrance oil, dye, and/or additives, which could result in a different optimal wick size for the same diameter candle. Made in the USA.

WICKING TIP: Coconut blended waxes are different than regular soy wax. There won't be a full melt pool until you get about half way down the jar. 100% soy has a "memory" and will tunnel, however, coconut blended waxes don't as much. Initially, there will be some "hang up" on the sides of the jar but as the wick burns, the sides of the jar heat up, and melt the rest of the wax.
