Wedo Candle WicksWedo P Series Wicks

This is a paper core wick with tension threads wrapped around the paper center to create a solid-cored rigid wick which takes on a slight curl when burning, allowing for a self-trimming flame posture.

The P series is considered to be a directional wick with a definite ideal directional flow. These wicks are effective anywhere physical rigidity is desired.

Glossary of terms

Yield
Measured in yards of wick per pound in weight. The higher the yield, the smaller the wick and the flame and the resulting heat generated.
ROC
The rate of wax consumption in ounces by the wick in one hour. The higher the burn rate the more wax which is being consumed. Used to determine how well a wick and wax combination is performing.
