ONE: Start off by taking a couple strands of your wool and wrap it around your soap. Do all one color, stripes or a creative pattern. Just make sure to cover the entire soap in wool so there are no “bald spots”. The corners of my soap (pictured above) still needs some more wool.
TWO: Wet the soap with warm water and start “using the soap”, scrubbing the wool with your hands, rubbing every inch of the soap. The felting process is basically matting the wool hair so it will stick together. Scrub for about 10-20 minutes until you can’t pinch off any of the wool fibers. I know what you’re thinking: 20 minutes is a long time. But think positive. When you’re done, your hands are going to be soft and smooth as a baby’s derrière.
