Aside from the fact that felted soaps are very pretty there are many good reasons to felt a soap. I have listed a few of them below.
1.) Felted soap makes a great lather.
2.) It holds all the “goop” so the soap lasts longer
3.) The wool provides a gentle exfoliant.
4.) Wool is naturally anti-bacterial so no yucky smell.
5.) It’s not slippery so it’s easy for little hands to hang on to.
6.) Once the soap is gone the wool that remains makes a gentle scouring pad.
7.) When you’ve had enough fun with it the wool goes back to the earth.
The soaps that I felt are made by Alberta Natural Products. They are handmade of 100% natural ingredients. The soap is felted with hand dyed superfine merino wool and tied with a hand dyed silk ribbon. They come in a variety of colors and scents. The make a very pretty and affordable gift.
