I decided I wanted to try felting some soaps. I had a bunch of rejects that were perfect for this. Plus I like the idea of a soap that had it’s own washcloth and was a gentle exfoliant :D
So off I went doing reserach. Came across a couple blogs that described the process and an article in Saponifier (those helped). Asked questions. Bought wool roving. Then set to work.
My first attempt didn’t go so great.
I think the wool was too thick. Once it dried I thinned out the thicker portions and then stretched it over the soap and refelted. It worked better.
This worked a little better but I still think it was too thick. Going to also try using a nylon to start with as I’ve seen suggested in a couple places…I hope that will help me get started better. So with those lessons in mind it’s off to try my next felted bar of soap!
