Hi all,

I have been testing, testing, testing. I am currently using #12 wax from California Candle Supply. It is a soy, palm and paraffin blend. I use LX wicks and for the most part they work great. I do not trim my wicks when I am testing as I like to create worst case scenarios. LX wicks tend to mushroom and then self trim. However, sometimes about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way down my vessel, they will simply curl in on themselves and form a loop. This leads to a bigger flame. My wicks are always trimmed to a 1/4” before the very first light. Then I just burn repeatedly without trimming until the candle is gone. Does anyone else have experience with LX wicks curling in on themselves? Thank you!
