Handier than soap on a rope--and prettier too!  Felted soap is soap covered in wool roving and then gently wet felted and made into a spa chic exfoliating soap.  Like soap and a washcloth all in one.

Step 1: What you'll need

Wool Roving--3 colors (you can use more but it can get a little tacky looking)
Soap--Find something you think smells pretty.  Rounded edges will be easier to felt.
Bubble wrap--a nice way to recycle.
Small spray bottle
Dish washing liquid (like Dawn, Palmolive)

Fill the spray bottle with warm water and add a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid.
Look for wool roving in bulk at your local yarn store--much cheaper than purchasing on line or at Jo-Ann's.
How would u use it?
You unwrap the soap right? And how big the soap, and how much wool?
Wish I'd seen this before I started felting soap. I use a dog brush and a bit of boiling water every so often to do the felting. Bubble wrap looks easier. Thanks!
I was wanting to make some for Christmas but have never felted before...how much wool do you need per soap approx? Thanks! :D
Nice! I have some scrap roving wool, so I think I'll give this a try soon. Thanks!
Ooh, I like! Felting is one of my favorite things. (As shown by my avatar.) :-)
That is so cute! What a nice idea!
