Beeswax Cakes for Crafting

Look what I found for you at the farmer’s market today. Well, I actually wanted some for myself, too. LOL

Beeswax Cake

There’s been a lot of discussion on the Yahoo Laceknitters list this week about knitting needles. Then that evolved into talking about methods to smooth and wax bamboo/wooden needles. A popular question was about sources for beeswax.

It just so happened that while we were buying some local alfalfa honey at the market today, I also sighted these pretty little beeswax cakes for sale on the vendor’s table.

I couldn’t help myself but imagine what a¬†pretty addition to the sewing/knitting basket. And beeswax is so useful, too, for our crafts.

I like that these cakes are pure refined 100% Beeswax with natural alfalfa honey scent. The slightly sweet, flower scent is soothing.

I’m planning to keep one handy for rubbing on my wooden and bamboo needles so the stitches glide more smoothly. This little cake is so much more elegant than the piece of inelegant wadded-up wax paper that I usually resort to.

I also know that beeswax is helpful to our crafts in many other ways, including beading, sewing and quilting.

So I bought some extra cakes for those interested. I think they are priced right to get one for yourself and even some more to gift your fiber-crafting friends.

  1. Jackie — I tried to order the Glow In The Dark Yarn from you but can not get it to come up in order to add it to my cart. How do I order? I would like 2 skiens/ounces each of the thin and thicker yarns. Please advise.

  2. Jackie,
    I would love some of these (beeswax cakes). How do I get them from you and how much. Thanks. I so enjoy your site! I get excited when I see there is something in my list from you!!

  3. At my HeartStrings FiberArts page at Facebook, Susan Aitel asked: What is “alfalfa honey”. I thought I would share my answer here, too, since undoubtedly someone else might have that same question.

    Alfalfa is honey that is made as a result of bees pollinating the alfalfa flower. According to Fossette Allane at in a comparison between alfalfa honey and the more common clover honey, alfalfa honey is
    * light color
    * mild aroma
    * gental flavor
    * slightly less sweet than clover honey
    * less common as it is more difficult for bees to pollinate alfalfa

    p.s. I misread Susan’s question and realized later that my spell-checker had automatically changed the word “alfalfa” to “alpaca”. No wonder Susan was asking! So, anyone seen or tasted any “alpaca honey”? I am still rolling over in laughter at myself for this.
