Please note, due to the manufacturing process, there can be a tiny amount of variation in wick dimensions. Typical sizes are as follows:
- Thickness: 0.50mm
- Width: 19mm
- Length: 152mm
THE ORIGINAL WICK
Our premier, all natural, single-ply Original Wick is made from native, sappy fruit trees and sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified mills and manufactured with pride (and great skill) in the USA. Offered in a variety of thicknesses, widths, and lengths and for use in all wax types, The Original Wick can be used on its own or combined with other wicks to meet your candle making needs. To achieve optimal burn performance in candles with high levels of fragrance, color or vegetable based waxes use two Original Wicks together (in one Wick Clip) to achieve the optimal crackling effect.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT WICK OR COMBINATION OF WICKS
We have created a wood wick sample/development kit that contains 5 of every wooden wick we stock, as well as 50 wick clips. We recommend you buy this kit to experiment and determine the best wicks for each of your candles. With 5 x 150mm wicks in every size and width, the kit should be suitable for projects of any size.
PATENTS & MARKING YOUR PRODUCTS
As an official distributor of Lumetique's wooden wick technology, we have an obligation to to ensure that any and all licensees are marking their covered products, and providing constructive notice to the public that the product is patented. As such, you will be required to mark any products made using our wooden wicks with a patent mark.
All candle products (whether a wooden wick, candle, box, hang-tag or other form of packaging) must be consistently and always marked as being covered by the applicable patents and patents pending.
HOW DO I MARK MY PRODUCTS?
Rather than trying to figure out which of the dozens of patents apply to your product, the best practice is to mark the candle product itself with the following patent marking:
- melting pool
- Eco System
- wood wicks
- Candle Shack
The 0.5mm wicks are my preferred wood wicks for Eco System & C-6 waxes, which are the only two waxes I work with. Best result was using 3 x 0.5mm woos wicks together. 2 x 0.5mm burned with a very small flame. The melting pool was 12cm/4.5” after 4 hours Of all the wood wicks the 0.5mm is my preferred wood wick. The sustainers are great too. They are a little heavier that Candle Shack’s old sustainers so they sit very nicely in the container without and glue/sticky pads. Well done Candle Shack for introducing yet another perfect product
