Felting Soap

 When you have a flock of wooly sheep, naturally there is going to be a fiber pile that is never ending. And since I hate to waste anything, I'm always looking for something to do with all the wool. If you don't have a flock of sheep to supply you with a pile of fiber, don't fret. There's plenty of shepherds and fiber folks out there that can supply it for you. And there are lots of fiber variety to boot..Navajo-Churro is by far my favorite wool to work with. But all of it seems to have it's place in the fiber world. Wool is wool and I love it all.

saving every fiber from Scarlet - her wool is gorgeous!

If you're looking for an easy felting project..here's a couple of video's to get you started with soap. I made these bars of soap with sheep's milk but any old bar of soap will do.
