This is my first felted project.



I make hemp soap so that's what I used. Holy smokes! This is addictive...

Those are awesome! I am completely obsessed with felted soap which is completely bizarre because I'm allergic to wool!  I think they are just so pretty and would make great gifts!  I think I would love them too if I were allergic to wool that is!

But I do have one question, is needle felting wool the same as wool roving or is roving the thin strands? Also, can needle felting wool be used for felted soap? I'm just getting all of the term confused.

As you can probably guess I'm FAR from a wool expert!  Embarrassed

Thanks everyone! PinkyK, I'm sorry that you're allergic to wool - that sucks. I'm new to terminology too but I'm pretty certain you can use neeedlefelting wool for soap. Here's the link to the tutorial I followed: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=67806.0 Hope that helps!
