Wedo, based in Nettetal, Germany, is a leading candle wick manufacturer in Europe. We found these wicks appealing due to their high quality of manufacture and the efficient burn characteristics which they exhibit.
All Wedo wicks are made from pure long strand ring spun cotton and are attractively white in appearance.
The LX wick is a uniquely braided, coreless, flat wick manufactured with stabilizing threads that ensure an optimum burn profile. This allows for a very stable and consistent flame, which minimizes, or eliminates, carbon buildup (mushrooming) while reducing afterglow, smoke and soot.
The LX series of wicks is designed to improve the burning of paraffin and vegetable waxes in pillars as well as containers.
The ECO wick is a flat, coreless, cotton wick with thin paper filaments interwoven for burn stability. The specially treated paper threads provide a controlled curling of the wick making the ECO series self-trimming, which results in minimized mushrooming, soot and smoke.
ECO wicks are particularly successful in lower melt-point vegetable and paraffin waxes.
This is a round wick with a uniquely braided cotton core designed with tension threads that give the wick a slight, but effective, curl during combustion. The wick is directional in that capillary action flows more freely in one direction. Due to their intricate design, the RRD series provides a centered burn pool, self-trimming burn characteristics and a consistently high rate of fuel flow.
These wicks work well with viscous fuels such as vegetable wax, gels and one pours. They are effective in containers and especially useful in pillars due to their concentric burn pools.
The TL wick is flat braided with a non-cored construction which allows for optimum wick movement into the flame during combustion. The TL line is designed to be used in tea lights and votives due to the low heat precision burning it offers in paraffin, vegetable and gel waxes.
The FW wick is a flat braided, coreless wick that has a very effective self-trimming wick profile that minimizes carbon buildup, soot and smoke. These wicks can be used in many different applications and with most paraffin wax formulations.
This is a specialty flat wick with unique non-cored braiding which allows it to maintain a consistent flow of fuel regardless of the fuel’s viscosity. The wick has a self-trimming burn profile and a special treatment intended to reduce mushrooming, smoke, soot and afterglow.
This series is used effectively in many diverse applications and is especially effective in gel candles.
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.
