Wool Felted Soap

Homemade Wool Felted Soap

An explosion of colors spilled from the box.  My roving wool had arrived. I couldn’t wait to try my hand at felting soap.

Felting soap is not a difficult process; wrap a strip of wool diagonally then horizontally, then embellish with additional strips of color.

Lightly moisten the wool wrapped soap with hot water, then gently pat wool into soap.  Once the wool has adhered to the soap and won’t slip off, add more hot water.  A more vigorous hand pressing, rolling of the soap in your hands can commence, working up a lather.  When the wool cannot be picked up off the soap, rinse with cold water, and pat dry. Place the wool felted soap on a cooling rack to dry out completely.   After your soap is dry, it is ready to use. Enjoy!

Characteristics of wool felted soap; wool will shrink with bar usage, wool acts as a mild exfoliating agent, and the soap bar should last longer.

Down in my basement, lined neatly on a shelf are handwritten notebooks chronicling my life. After years of writing, the experience became more of a burden then an important part of my day so I quit writing. Five years later I took up writing again. This time it was in the form of a blog which gave me a place to hang out after I lost my job. From there my blog content morphed into writing about my general contractor experience building our house. As my life experiences grew so did my blog.
