Felted Soaps Class!

Felted Soaps
Come make a splendid Mother’s Day Gift!
Explore the endless possibilities of this centuries old craft called wet felting when you wrap your favorite bar of soap with natural wool roving. The wool shrinks and felts around the soap, turning itself into a built in washcloth and even creates waves of color and designs. Wool is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, so your soap will stay fresh and last 3x as long. No more gooey soap mess in your shower. You will leave with 2 felted and wrapped soaps, all ready for gift giving!
