Large Hand Dipped Beeswax Candle
About our Large Hand Dipped Beeswax Candle
Made in Alston in Cumbria, by the inimitable Ted Thompson and his team, these beautiful candles have a natural tapered shape, the result of the process by which they are made, properly crafted by hand.
Dipping has long been a method of candle making, and when candles were essential to life in the country, rushlights were made by dipping the pith of rushes in mutton fat or dripping. Only the church and the wealthy would be able to afford beeswax candles.
For every ten tons of honey only a quarter ton of beeswax is produced. Larger beekeepers in this country can keep over a thousand hives, often this wax is wasted and so it’s a delight to see these beautiful objects light up our homes.
Height: 22cm Base Diameter: 4.4cm tapering to the top. Burn time 24hrs. All candles sold in pairs joined at the wick.
