Custom Hand Felted Soap

Felted Soaps

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.

The texture of the wool works well as an exfoliant for the face and body. One of the other benefits to using felted soap instead of naked bar of soap is that it holds in all the “soap goo.” A lot of soap gets wasted when it sits in a puddle of water or stays wet between uses. The felt holds that “goo” and turns it into lather as you use it, only releasing soap as you squeeze, rub or press the bar. In addition, the felt rubs against the bar of soap all the way down to the last sliver. You’re not left with that last little shard floating down the drain as you look around trying to find it.

Due my utilization of soap chips, the soap scents and quantities I have available vary so please visit my Etsy Shop's Bath & Skin Care Section for my inventory currently in stock. For made-to-order custom felted soaps in quantities not available in my Etsy shop, such as for wedding favors, please contact me directly.

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.

Natural Soap - Organic Soap

Natural handmade soap

As I’m sure you know, there are many chemical preservatives and detergents, such as parabens and sodium lauryl sulfate, in commercial soaps that can dry out and strip your skin. Natural soap leaves out all those nasty chemicals and takes things back to basics; pure, natural ingredients.

The Kerrminator’s handmade felted soaps contain only natural ingredients such as palm oil, coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, rice bran oil, aloe vera, stearic acid, calendula, cinnamon powder, dried peppermint, chlorella, french green clay, comfrey root, essential oils, oatmeal, bran, and honey. These soap bars are long lasting, and last even longer with their felt covering. They are gentle on skin and pleasantly scented.

Alpaca Wool - Alpaca Fiber - Alpaca Fleece

Alpaca wool is stronger and lighter than sheep’s wool, very soft, and comes in over 20 different colors. Alpaca wool is easy on the skin because the fibers of the wool are much smoother than sheep’s wool, and it doesn’t contain any lanolin. In addition, alpaca wool is considered hypoallergenic.

First quality wool is the wool taken from the main body of the animal. It is the longest, most crimpy wool, making it ideal for yarn, jackets, suits, skirts, coats, and even bedding. The second and third quality fibers are from the neck and legs of the animal which doesn’t grow quite as long, isn’t as crimpy, and usually has a coarser texture. These cuttings are often used for such things as rugs or just tossed out.

Scrap Soap Chips - Scrap Soap Bars - Imperfect Soap Bars

Scrap soap is the result of cutting the slab of soap into uniform bars, leaving some odd shaped and sized pieces on the ends. There is nothing wrong with these pieces, they are simply not standard bar size or shape. In some cases, however, some of the solid ingredients that are suspended in the bars of soap, can settle in areas and so some bars may have more suspended materials than others. That is just another subtle imperfection that is enough of a variation that it can’t be placed with the other uniform bars of soap.
