Superior 800 Candle Wicks

Paper Core - Braided Wick Design - Great Scent Throw

Superior 800 wicks are designed to provide clean-burning candles with minimal carbon build-up and soot. Due to their paper core, the Superior 800 wick series will create a wider melt pool without the oversized flame you would get with most larger wicks. We carry all 8 sizes of Superior 800 Wicks.

Our Superior 800 Wicks have a natural wax coating. No paraffin!

Product Features

  • Great for hard-to-wick fragrances and waxes.
  • High melt point natural wax coating.
  • Paper core allows the flame to burn hotter without getting too large.
  • Designed to bend slightly while burning, which allows for less soot and carbon buildup.
  • Suitable for container candles, votives, or pillar candles.

    Length: 6"

    Tab size: 20mm round base with a 6mm neck that helps stabilize the wick.

    Lead free.

      Size recommendations are suggestions only. Wicking will vary based on a variety of factors including amount of fragrance, type of container, wax, and other factors.

      For larger containers, you may find that it works best to double-wick your candles using a smaller wick size.

      Quantities of 5000+ wicks may require additional lead time. Contact us for availability.

      WICK FAQ

      What type of wick should I use?

      Our candle wicks are suitable for container candles and pillar candles. The type of wick you choose is mostly a matter of personal preference. We recommend reading the descriptions on the wick product pages to learn more about the properties of each wick.

      How do I choose the right size of candle wick?

      The appropriate wick size depends on numerous factors, including the size of your jar, the type of wax you’re using, fragrance load, the type of fragrance you’re using and more.

      Due to the number of factors that influence wick performance, it isn’t possible to provide a one-size-fits-all answer about choosing a wick. However, we do provide size guidelines on each wick product page. You can also refer to our Wick Size Chart, which includes recommendations based on the size of your container.

      How can I tell if I am using the right size of candle wick?

      Wicking a candle properly takes some trial and error. We recommend reading our blog How to Choose the Right Wick For Your Wax to learn more about wicking candles.

      How do I test candle wicks?

      Testing candle wicks involves making candles with different wick sizes to determine which wick provides the best burn. We provide a free printable Candle Testing Note Sheet that is helpful for keeping track of your test candles. For tips on using candle testing note sheets, check out this blog post.

      We recommend purchasing a wick sample pack when trying out a new type of candle wick. Our sample packs include 5 wicks of each size in the series.

      What kind of wax can I use with your wicks?

      Our wicks are suitable for any of our candle waxes, including Ceda Serica, EC-26, CB2, and Soy Wax Flakes. You can use our wicks with other candle waxes as well. We recommend testing your candle wicks each time you try a new wax (see questions above). For more information on our candle wax, view our Wax FAQ.

      What type of coating do your wicks have?

      Candle wicks either have a natural wax coating or paraffin wax coating. Please note that we opt for natural wax coatings whenever possible. Read our blog on candle wick coatings to see what coating is on each type of wick. The paraffin wax used for coating candle wicks is a fully-refined wax. Read our paraffin wax blog for more information on this topic.

      Can I buy candle wicks in bulk?

      Yes! We have quantities from 10 wicks to 10,000+ wicks. You can order quantities of up to 5,000 wicks directly from most of our wick product pages. For quantities of 5,000+ wicks, please note that additional processing time may be required. Please contact us for product availability if you are concerned about longer lead times for orders of 5,000+ wicks.
