One of the most common questions in candle making is what wick should I use. We carry a full range of sizes from tea light wicks to large container candle wicks.

How to measure your container

The size wick you need depends on the diameter (width) of your container. All our wicks are 150mm in length so as long as your container isn’t taller than 135mm then our wicks will be suitable for you.
