I think the idea is that it is a built-in wash cloth.Sorry, but I just don't "get" felted soap. Pretty? Sure. But I don't want to wash with a hairy bar of soap, stinky or not. And I imagine it's difficult for the soap to really dry out between uses. And then, at the end, what.....you throw the wool away? I've made felted mittens and I looooove them. Felted soap, no thanks. Am I missing something?
Do you have some recommendations for suppliers? I want to try felting soap but I know diddly about it except what I Googled, and a lot of that information is vague.And dixie is right -- felted soap is not itchy -- I've also thought that is partly because you're washing with it, not wearing it, so the wool isn't able to do its prickly thing. If you use a fine gauge merino and felt it well, it's not particularly hairy either.
