yeah, its really pretty cool.  It felts more and more when you use it, so the wool shrinks with the size of the soap.  plus, the wool is a nice exfoliator!

Felted soap rocks! The felt is like the soap's own personal washcloth. There's a great tute here if you want to try it. It is very easy!

Superhooker, you have got to be one of the most awesome swappers out there!!  The package you sent was INCREDIBLE!!  Even before I opened it there was the most heavenly smell wafting from it.  The source was the fabulous felted soap...

One for me and one for hubby Wink

Then some scrumptious yarn which my dd has demanded I make something with for her because it's "fluff-ly"...


TONS of loose crochet patterns and crochet books!!  I almost bought "the Crochet Answer Book" a week ago Wink


Last but certainly not least a flamingo beaded handbag, dd loves large birds and this bag now houses her littleleappad and cartridges (her fave toy), and some homemade goats-milk lotion which, I have to say, I've fallen completely in love with and have since googled how to make it myself and have earmarked this month's craft budget for the supplies to make more Grin 


Thank you so much, superhooker, I love it all!!  Anybody who gets picked by her is a lucky duck Cheesy

I do dye a lot of my own rovings, but the stuff on those particular soaps is from Louet...my yarn/spinning supply store sells these bags with bits of different colors of Louet Merino, which is heavenly.  I bought a couple of those bags and went right home to make soaps and beads!

I'm so glad you like the crochet stuff!  be careful, it is addictive, and it is a gateway drug to the rest of the fiber arts...soon you'll be telling people exactly why wool felts when washed, but other fibers don't...and I'm talking about complete strangers...

I did that on Saturday when I got my oil changed. I was wearing the necklace you made me and the mechanic asked me, "What is your necklace supposed to be?" So I gave him an 8 minute explanation, during which his eyes glazed over and he searched around for help, then he said, "Oh." Good times.
