I spend my time raising kids, gathering eggs, cutting wood, scoping out trees for tapping, making syrup in the last days of winter, watching my garden NOT grow in the summer, writing, wishing that there were more hours on the clock for sleeping.

Do you know what felted soap is?

Maybe you have never seen felted soap. Felted soap is a bar of your favorite soap with a thick cocoon of rich wool felted snugly around it. When wet and rubbed for a few minutes in water the bar creates a lather thick as shaving cream. The bar will also last for much longer then a bare bar.

 If you have never felted soap before then you don't know what you are missing!
It is like therapy for your mind and hands!

Felting soap is fun and soothing!

Not to mention how soft your hands will feel after you have felted a bar!

Then there is the very beautiful soap with a built in wash cloth.

The wool has antimicrobial properties that keep the felt clean.

and works as an exfoliate to make your skin soft and smooth

                                                         Now you know what felted soap is!
