Ultra Core Candle Wicks

We carry all 18 sizes of Ultra Core Wicks!

Rigid, all-fiber wicks with a knitted construction. These wicks offer the same stability of zinc-core wicks - without the wire core. Made in the USA.

  • Designed to stay straight in your wax as you pour.
  • High melt point natural wax coating.
  • Great for single-wick and multi-wick candles.
  • Performs well in all wax types - including coconut, soy, beeswax, paraffin and other blends.
  • Capable of handling heavy fragrance loads and difficult waxes.
  • Suitable for container candles and votives.
  • Wicks produce shorter, hotter flames and create little to no soot.

The patented open construction of Ultra Core Wicks provides optimal capillary flow. This results in better melt pools with a stronger fragrance throw and less tunneling. Read our tips for getting started with Ultra Core wicks.

Length: 6"

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

Lead and zinc free.

    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.
