Felted soap continues to be a popular item. For those not familiar with felted soap, it is soap that has been wrapped in strands of sheep wool, dipped in water, then allowed to dry. The wetting and drying process shrinks the wool tightly around the soap. When the soap is used, it lathers up through the wool. The wool acts as a built in wash cloth, and it shrinks as the soap is used up, so it remains tight. The wool helps the soap last longer, and is naturally resistant to mildew. The soap used with our felted soap is handmade using the cold process method. We look at felted soap as more than a novelty item. They make beautiful gifts but are also quite practical, and we strive to keep prices reasonable. We love our felted soap and are proud of the quality and value.
