Custom Felted Soap Mother’s Day Giveaway

the-kerrminator-custom-felted-peppermint-soapMother’s day is right around the corner and what better gift to give your mom, than a subtle hint to wash herself! Or pamper herself, whichever you prefer. Or maybe you are a mom and want this for yourself. At any rate, in this giveaway you have the opportunity to try two of my new felted soaps, not yet available to purchase online.

The first is the Spicy Cinnamon and Aloe scented 2 ounce felted face bar. This soap is felted with black and warm brown naturally colored alpaca wool and has a strong cinnamon scent that is great as a nightly face wash or even as a daily hand soap. It contains saponified palm, coconut and olive oil, essential oils, cinnamon powder, and alpaca wool.

The other bar is the Calming Peppermint scented 3.75 ounce felted body bar. This bar is felted with naturally colored gray alpaca wool, has a very distinct, powerful scent and is rather refreshing. It contains saponified palm, coconut and olive oils, essential oils, dried peppermint, and alpaca wool. The winner will have the choice to have a script letter in white alpaca wool put on one side of the peppermint bar.

About Felted Soap

Felted soap is bar soap that has been wrapped in wool roving, most often sheep wool or alpaca wool, and wet felted. Sometimes the felted bar soap is decorated with contrasting colors by wrapping wool yarn or strands of wool fiber over top of the base color, or by needle felting.

I utilize “wool seconds” and scrap soap bars for my felted soap. I hate waste so being able to utilize scrap soap bars, as well as wool scraps is satisfying, knowing the otherwise “imperfect” or “reject” goods can be turned into something function and beautiful.

Thanks to the wonderful palette of natural colors available from Alpacas, there really is no need for dying the wool. All of the alpaca fleece I use for my felted soaps are natural, un-dyed fibers straight off the animal. There is no need to worry about dyes running or bleeding when you get the bars wet, and no need to worry about dyes causing skin irritation.
