Woolflowers and Eco Soy Candles

I am now having a lot of fun making candles from eco-soy wax. This is a renewable wax made from soy beans. These candles are clean burning and don't give off the noxious fumes that candles made from paraffin wax do (ugh). They burn for 8 - 10 hours at least. Most are scented (lavender, green tea, citrus and basil, ho wood and other fragrances tbd!) I am selling them at various craft fairs this winter.

I am also making pretty woolflower brooches that can brighten up a jacket, scarf of hat. Some are made with organic wool from the Isle of Mull, others with a scarce wool from the Bernat Klein studio. I am also decorating some of them with Swarovski Crystals!
