Felted soap is just that, felted soap! Felt is wool textile made out of condensed wool fibers that create a smooth surface.
We use a mix of local wool from Ash Grove Farm in Jericho, Vermont and Merino wool sourced from other parts of the world including New Zealand.
We wrap the soap in wool roving, wet felt the wrapped soap and the result is a bar of soap and washcloth in one with many other added benefits.
Felted Soap is more than just soap. It is an art, adding color and personality to your home. Express yourself with this fun and creative fiber art!

Barn Owl VT
We care about the environment and so try to supply All Natural soaps free of plastic packaging. We strive to understand the influence products have on ourselves and the natural world.
The best way to lather a felted soap is to run it under hot water, give it a slight sqeeze and then rotate it in the hands. To keep the lather don’t allow the shower stream to rinse off the suds on the felted soap, otherwise you will need to re-lather it again. Tip: Keep your bar aerated when not in use. Remember that felted soap is wrapped in fibers and so will need extra lather time(5-10seconds).
