About felted soap

An eco friendly alternative to plastic bottles of soap! Your pretty bar of soap will brighten up your bathroom, will last longer, not get soggy, be easier to handle and the wool felt scrubby you are left with when the soap is finished is 100% biodegradable!

• Covered in 100% pure merino wool, felted soap gently exfoliates and washes all in one.
• It’s a really gentle way of cleansing & exfoliating your skin. The fibres are much gentler on your skin than a lot of loofahs and scrub products.
• The soap will last longer and every last bit of the soap is used. It doesn’t slip around in the bath or shower, making you less likely to drop it, so it’s ideal for small children or those with poor dexterity.
• There is no need for a wash cloth – simply wet the felted soap with water and rub between your hands to lather or directly on your skin. Allow it to dry out between uses.
• As you use it, the wool will continue to shrink around the bar of soap until you are left with a pretty little wool felt scrubby, perfect to use for cleansing your skin or even cleaning your kitchen! The scrubby is also 100% biodegrable which means you can safely compost it once you have finished with it!

Workshop
In this workshop you will learn how to apply pure merino wool fibres to soap, before being taken through the wet felting process. By the end you will have 2 pretty felted soaps to take away with you. We will have a short break in the middle for tea/coffee and home made cake.
This workshop is suitable for beginners or those who already have some experience of felting. It is also suitable for accompanied children age 8+.

Why not book with a friend or get a group of your friends together?

Here's what some previous participants have said about my previous felted soap making workshops:

'A very enjoyable afternoon, getting covered in lovely smelling soap, while learning how to produce very pretty and useful soaps. Delicious cake! And a very patient and helpful Karen! Highly recommended.' Vicki, Nov 2021

'Really enjoyed this craft workshop - not difficult at all but very rewarding to come out with 2 lovely felted soaps and the knowledge of how to make more. Merino wool is so soft and smooth it was very soothing to gently roll the soap around in your hands. And the cake was amazing!!' Karen, Nov 2021

On the day, please bring with you an old medium sized towel and a plastic bag to take your damp towel home in.

If you get a group of friends together I can organise a workshop to suit you! Ideal for birthdays, Hen Nights and other celebrations! Click the 'chat with the maker' button on the top right with your requirements.
