Chandlery - What Does it Mean?

Chandlery is an 'old' or historic word meaning, a handmade maker and seller of tallow, wax candles, and also usually soap.

New Candle Products - FelinFach Chandlery

Welsh Candles - Handmade, Hand Poured

We've been making candles for many years but only sold them at Fairs and Shows all around the UK. The COVID lockdown of 2020/2021 put an end to that and from early 2022, we offered them on our website too.

New Chandlery Products

Also new in 2022, we've now added other new products to the range,

  • reed diffusers,
  • wax melts and tealights
  • hand wash and hand lotion
  • wick trimmers and candle snuffers
  • wax burners
  • Archivist luxury matches

Just like our candles, all reed diffusers, wax melts, tealights and hand wash & lotion are hand poured in small batches by us in Pembrokeshire.
