ColorJoyful Felted Soaps

Monday, October 11th, 2010

During the CAYSC Lansing-area knitting shop hop, I offered a few drop in/make it and take it projects for shop hoppers. Most of them were intent on getting to four shops in a short while and did not hang out. Sarah-Ashley came in to do Felted Soaps with me, however.


I find these extremely satisfying to make. The freedom to play with colors, translucence, shape, texture… it’s very joyful and freeing. Each one turns out differently, and they are a bit addictive.

Yes, they really do work as soap for washing. The soft wool is a gentle texture on the skin, and the wool shrinks as the bar of soap shrinks. The felt makes the soap last longer, probably because it slows down friction on the soap’s surface.

We had a fine time! Thanks for coming around and experimenting with me, Sarah-Ashley!
