It is raw wool that is felted around a bar of soap.
During the felting process, using hot water and friction, the raw wool fibers mesh until they are felted together with the bar of soap inside.
With Soap-in-a-Coat, it becomes a washcloth and soap in one. Made with wool, it will gently exfoliate and scrub your skin. I keep one at the sink to give a little extra scrubby after working in the garden. It's also good for arthritic or children’s tiny hands. The coat makes it easier to hold onto the bar of soap. Soap-in-a-Coat is super convenient for campers and backpackers.
Tips for using Felted Soaps
As the felted soap is used, the wool will continue to shrink as the soap gets smaller.
After every use, store the felted soap on a soap dish that will allow all sides to dry out.
Discard fiber after soap is gone
What technique will be used to make the felted soap?
During the make and take sessions, you will be able to Wet-Felt and/or Needle-Felt the soap.
The wet-felt process uses water and friction to felt the wool to create the coat. You will have a variety of colors to use to add interest and color to your creation.
The needle-felt process uses a needle with wool to create additional designs on an already felted bar of soap.
Here are some wet-felt designs on soap from Pinterest. Are the creative juices going yet?
Put it on the calender to come felt soaps with me on Friday, February 12th either at 11am or at 2:30 pm. The great part about felted soaps is great conversation always accompanies felting. Bring or Make a friend!
