Felted soap is just that, felted soap! Defined by Wiki, "Felt is a textile material that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together." We use a mix of local wool from Ash Grove Farm in Jericho, Vermont and Merino wool sourced from other parts of the world including New Zealand. We wrap the soap in wool roving, wet felt the wrapped soap and the result is a bar of soap and washcloth in one with many other added benefits. Felted Soap is more than just soap. It is also an art, adding color and personality to your home. Express yourself with this fun and creative fiber art!
Why Felted Soap?
Anti-microbial - The bar will resist bacteria
Non-Slip - Reduces the soap slipping out of hands
Renewable - Property of wool
Exfoliating - A gentle course texture to exfoliate the skin to improve overall skin health
Biodegradable - Compost your "owl pellet." Owl Pellet is the remains of a fully used bar of felted soap.
Sustainable - Sheep keep producing more wool
Hypoallergenic - You shouldn't be allergic to a felted soap bar.
Lather Up! - Builds a better lather than regular bars of soap.
No need for a loofah/washcloth, saving shower space and additional laundry.
Enduring - Helps soap last longer. The wool retains and prevents excess runoff.
