Trend Alert: Short and Stout Beeswax Candles for Long Winter Nights

January 12, 2023

Stubby beeswax candles have been proliferating of late. Not as formal as tapers, less church-like than pillar candles, they provide a cozy, long-lasting flame as you work, dine, and dance through the dark winter days.

Wholesaler Moorlands Candles, Ted Thompson’s family-run workshop founded in 1981 in Cumbria, England, seems to make the majority of these hand-dipped designs—and to have ignited the trend. Other candlemakers have followed suit. And a number of workshops have come up with a wardrobe of holders for these singular, stumpy candles.
