Felted soaps make a great gift. In short time you can take beautifully colored wool and encase soap. Why would one want to cover soap in wool? The woolen coating which is naturally antifungal, acts as its own exfoliating washcloth.
It also makes the soap last longer. I had one the lasted a month before it became a solid piece of felt. Add water and you will have plenty of lather. If you use a naturally hand made soap, you can not only feel good about the product that you are using, but you’ll be squeaky clean all at the same time. This can also make a fun project for kids for those snow days.
There will a free adult felted soap workshop on Sunday, Dec. 14 from 1-2 p.m. at the shop. Soap making kits will be available for purchase.
