Janet Marie Felted Goods – Wool Soaps
“Our felted soap balls are handmade in small batches using only the highest quality ingredients. We start with organic oils and carefully chosen fragrances to make our long-lasting cold-process soaps. After curing, they are wrapped in wool and felted by hand. These high-quality, olive oil-based soaps lather extremely well. Wrapped in naturally anti-fungal sheep’s fiber, the felted soaps act as both a washcloth and exfoliating loofah combined. As the soap shrinks so does the wool, leaving you with a small, multi-purposed scrubby that can be used in the kitchen, bathroom, etc. After each use the natural wool absorbs the lather with no need to rinse, leaving you with a longer-lasting soap.” These beautiful little soaps are perfect for easter baskets! Handmade in Madison, Wisconsin.
