This is my first WSP knot and I was wonder what loft I should go for?  It's a 26mm knot and I face lather.

I face lather 99% of the time and I find I personally like a knot with a 50-51 loft. I have a TGN 2 Band finest and a TGN HMW. My knots are all 24mm so I'm not to sure if the same loft height would feel the same with a 26mm. I know that does not help you much but I don't think the 2mm would make that huge a difference.

Which WSP knot did you get? It can make a bit of a difference with a few millimetres, really, depending on the type of knot. However, with a 26mm knot, 50-53mm is a good, standard loft. 
As a reference, I have quite a few of the original WSP Stubby Superfine 2-Band knots and the loft on all of them are at 54mm and higher, one even going to 57mm and the backbone is still incredible strong. These were some of the best knots I have used, especially, for the price. 
Good luck.

Thanks Feddie. 50-51mm is my first inclination.

It's a 26mm high mountain white bulb.

If it is the HMW, then I would go with a 50-52mm depending on how much backbone you want. The HMW knots have less backbone than their Superfine 2-Band counter-parts. 
Good luck.
