Welcome to my best seller at The Cygnet gallery! These yummy handmade bars of soap (Raspberry Ripple, Apple & Blueberry, Pineapple & Mango, Strawberries & Cream, Rhubarb & Custard.....please don't eat them!) are supplied to me as soap loaves by two fantastic soap makers. After slicing these into soap bars, I wrap them in merino wool before washing my hands what feels like a zillion times to felt them. No olive soap or washing up liquid required - just some netting and some bubble wrap, a bowl of water and a pair of hands.
Once sold, the customer becomes the felter, because every time they wash their hands with my felt soap, the wool continues to felt shrinking down with the bar of soap. At the end of your soap's life, all that's left is a small knob of wool.
Not only that, wool is a fantastic exfoliator for those palms and fingers AND it stops your wash basin getting in a slimy mess!
