Why wrap soap in felt? I hear you ask. Well, felting this beautiful wool and silk blended fibre around the soap makes the soap lather a little more than it ordinarily would and provides a lovely texture against the skin. The fibres felt together more tightly as the soap is used and by the time the soap has been fully dissolved, you are left with a hollow felted pouch which can be stuffed with lavender or other items. These felt wrapped soaps make special gifts.
