   I tried felting soap the other night with some wool I had left over from spinning.  It felted okay, but it made the entire apartment smell like wet sheep.  I am worried that you are going to get this smell everytime you wet it.  Is there a particular kind of wool that I should be using instead?

You know, I don't think you can get rid of the smell as much as you could get AROUND it.  Try taping several fabric softener sheets to the blades of an overhead fan, or to teh metal portion of a floor-standing fan, and putting it on high.  I find that method works well to eliminate many icky ordors quickly.

You could try to wash the fleece in shampoo before hand, or use nice smelling shampoo as soap to felt it. Keeping the whole thing underwater while you felt it may work, also.
