Light up her World

Mothers are like candles, they burn themselves out to give others light. So give her back the gift of light and a beautiful fragrance for her home with one of our Mill Collection Candles. Each scent corresponds to a different aspect of our Foxford Mill and history. Allow Cashmere to wrap her up in luxury like one of our throws. The Loom will take her away to the blossoming West of Ireland countryside our mill is located in. These candles are soy based as such they are biodegradable, the will burn slower and longer and they don't have any carcinogens so that means these beautiful candles will not trigger allergies.
