Candle Wicks Offered

Candlewic has one of the largest inventories of raw wicking and pre-waxed wick assemblies in the US. We offer all of our wicks in small or large rolls and as pre-waxed wick assemblies. Every wick type listed is available in either 4 or 8 oz. rolls or in factory sized rolls. Factory sized rolls can vary by wick family. Pre-waxed wick assemblies will take all the work out of making tea-lights, floaters, votives and jar candles. The wick can be made to your specifications using our unique Custom Wick Builder.

Zinc Cored Wicks (Container, Votive, and Tea Light Candles)
Zinc core wicking is used in many applications such as tea-lights, votives and container candles. Zinc burns the coolest of all the cored wicks and offers the most rigidity. These wicks are constructed by using 100% natural fibers in the cover with the zinc core. Zinc cored wicks are most effective in paraffin based waxes and VersaGel, they are not recommended for use in natural/renewable waxes. If using a one-pour wax you may need to increase in size.
