Candlewicking is a form of whitework embroidery that traditionally uses an unbleached cotton thread on a piece of unbleached muslin. It gets its name from the nature of the soft spun cotton thread, which was braided then used to form the wick for candles.
The art of candlewicking began in colonial America by women who traveled westward and became resourceful. They discovered candlewicks could be used for embroidery and a new creative art form was born.
