Hi, Guys, and Welcome to Studio Knit. Today we are going to Felt Soap. This is a
great Spring Time and Easter Holiday Craft Project. There is no experience necessary
and it is a great project to make with kids. Felted Soaps make great gifts! They look like
Easter Eggs when you add them to your Basket of Goodies. They smell yummy, are a great
conversation piece, and you will never want to shower without the exfoliating power of
felted soap again. The Materials you will need are: Wool Roving,
Soap, Water, and Nylons Step One: Wrap Wool Roving around Soap.
I like to pull the Wool Roving apart and loosely wrap around the soap. Make certain to make
it not too thick, but also not too thin. Step Two: Place Soap inside Nylons. Wrap the
Nylons around your soap, to keep the wool roving in place. Step Three: Felt by Rubbing Under Hot-Cold
Water. Switch between hot and cold water, as you
rub the soap. I like to felt up 2 soaps at a time, rubbing them together, to save time.
Be patient! Step Four: Remove from Nylons After 10 to
15 Minutes. Remove the soap slowly from the nylons. The
wool may stick to the nylons, so do it slowly! Step Five: Set to Dry for 1 to 2 days.
Usually, soaps dry within 24 hours. But, if you are giving it as a gift, allow 2 days
to ensure your soap is completely dry. I hope you enjoyed learning how to make your
very own Felted Soaps! For more do it yourself crafting and knitting
