Our ivory taper candles are a classic and tradional candle color suited for the home, weddings and all occasions. The 10" taper candle burns approximately for 9 hours. The outer core of this taper is made of an extremely hard-shell wax crafted with the highest quality paraffin wax and all cotton wick that prevents the candle from dripping. Tapers fit any standard taper holder. Keep wick trimmed to 1/4". Keep away from drafts.
