25 wedo LX pre waxed and tabbed votive wicks.
These wicks come 80mm lengths, pre-waxed and with 15mm sustainers fitted. There is a choice of natural wax or paraffin wax coating. I find the pre waxed wicks slightly easier to work with.
Wedo LX wick is a very thin flat wick that curls into the flame to produce a great self trimming effect. Effective in both paraffin and natural wax but when used in natural wax it is common that you have to use a lot larger size than you would in paraffin wax. Large amounts of scent in a candle can affect the performance of the wedo LX wick.

General rule of what wick to buy - Choosing a wick size can be a tricky business, especially as it is partly trial and error depending on wax, amount of colouring and scent etc. The size of wick you require is governed by the width of candle you want to make. You are trying to achieve a wax pool the whole width of the candle. The length is not as important especially when buying by the metre as it can be cut to length. So measure the width of your container or mould and this will be the size of the wick you want. This is the figure shown next to the wick in the wick guide.
