These 8” tapered candles have a 7/8” diameter and burn for 6 hours. They are each hand-dipped over 20 times by Artisans in Massachusetts. These candles are a blend of waxes which creates the unique Spun Finish (a linen-like texture) on the candles. The wick is 100% cotton and has a dry cup burn. All candles are dripless and smokeless under normal conditions.
