Felted Soap

Today I learned a technique of felting that included needle felting and agitation with wool roving on a bar of soap.  The process was incredibly quick and easy and fun!  Why would someone want to felt a bar of soap?  As I discovered, it creates a soap and wash cloth in one.  More interestingly, wool has a natural anti bacterial quality, so no mold, mildew, or germs will grow.  I discovered you can use this technique on handmade soap or commercial soap.  Let the bubbles begin!
