The LX26 wick is a uniquely braided, coreless, flat wick manufactured with stabilizing threads that ensure an optimum burn profile. The allows for a very stable and consistent flame, which minimizes, or eliminates, carbon buildup (mushrooming) while reducing afterglow, smoke, and soot. The LX series of wicks are designed to improve the burning of paraffin and vegetable waxes in pillars as well as containers.
Our LX 26 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.

LX Wick Guide
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.
LX Wicks Rate of Consumption Chart (downloadable)
What is Yield?
Measured in yards of wick per pound in weight. The higher the yield, the smaller the wick and the flame and the resulting heat generated.
What is Rate of Consumption?
The ROC (rate of consumption) is the amount of wax consumed in ounces per hour in a standardized text. The rate may vary with different waxes. Test burning is always recommended to determine the proper wick for your wax formula and vessel.
I'm using a 13.5 oz Libbey jar with a diameter of 3-1/8". Feel free to adjust your wicks accordingly based on your wax, vessel size/diameter, and fragrance load. Hopefully this helps with your testing and gives you a reference point to start with.
