|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!
