We went to Preston today (about 35 minutes by train from Manchester) to spend time with friends. We arrived a few hours before they were to pick us up so that we could have a wonder about the town. Well, we just happened to end up in a fishing shop and I was able to get some Pearsall's Gossamer silk in primrose, and it came with a chunk of Cobblers wax for proper "Greenwell's Glory"! It looks like a piece of dark chocolate in colour. It might be that a dark brown bee's wax candle would work as a good substitute?
