Who Needs A Wash Cloth?

Well...I've been soaping again. I promise I'll get some cards up here soon, but these are just so darn cute, and functional...that I just HAD to share!

These soaps come with their own wash cloths made of 100% Merino Wool! Why wool? Wool has natural anti-fungal properties and retains its freshness! As you wash, the wool remains tight around the soap making the bar last longer! The felt actually shrinks along with the soap as you use it.

The best thing about them, is that once you've used up the soap that's in them, you can cut a slit the wool casing with scissors, and slip another bar in there!

These four have a bar of my handmade Coconut Milk soap in them! I think some felted Anisette Creamed Hemp bars would work well...they look so 60's with the felting on them!!

Thanks for visiting...I can't believe it's the middle of the week already!! I'll be putting these up in my etsy shop in the next week or so. Have a great day!



  1. Wow! What a creative idea! I like them a lot!

  6. I keep meaning to try making felted soap, but haven't got around to it - it looks beautiful. I think this may just be the inspiration I need!


Thanks for the comments!
