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!
