Get supplies together. What you will need is a boot mat. Can get at Walmart for $4. Nylon sock. Dish soap. Merino or corriedale roving. Bar of soap. 2 bowls, one for hot water and other or cold water.

Step 2: Wrap the Soap

Step 3: Wrapping the Soap in a Sock

I found the best way to wet felt soaps is to prep it before adding it to the sock. This helps prevent the wool from moving and corners not covered. I put some dish soap on my hand, grab the bar of soap get it wet in hot water. I squish the wet wool around the bar. Make sure the soap is not exposed. Then add to the nylon sock.

Step 4: Felting

Scrub the soap on the boot mat for 5- 10 mins. Alternating from hot and cold water. You will know when you soap is done when it sticks to the sock, and you can pull with out it coming off.

Step 5: Finished Bar

When you take the soap out, press it in a dry towel. Let sit over night. Also you can join my Facebook group for felting soaps, Fiber Artist Felted Soaps
