Each of our hand dipped taper candles is dipped over 20 times by a dedicated craftsperson using a technique that has been in place since our founding in 1969. This technique, combined with our proprietary blend of waxes, is what creates the unique Spun Finish - a distinct linen-like visual texture - on our tapers. Learn more about dripless taper candles >

We carefully select the materials that make up our taper candles - matching the consistency of each wax to varying configurations of 100% cotton wick - for optimal performance. This harmony creates our beloved dry cup burn. Each standard size taper candle is dripless and smokeless when burned under normal conditions.

Our 8 inch taper candles are ideal candles for candlesticks, as their shorter length compliments striking taper candleholders. Our favorite colored tapers are sweetheart red taper candles, solid black dripless taper candles, and teal taper candles (Caribbean Blue is a beautiful shade!).

7/8" diameter tapers should fit any standard sized candleholder. If you need a little extra security, try our sticky wax.
