Felted Soap

A scrubbie & soap in one! We wrap alpaca fiber around a bar of goat milk or soy soap, then felt the fiber around the soap. Participants can get creative with different alpaca fiber colors or adding embellishments with yarn or felt cut-outs. The felt scrubbie allows you to use every bit of the soap instead of it sticking to the tub. These make great stocking stuffers! 

Cost: $8.50/person

Time Required: 30 minutes

Appropriate for ages 5 & up. Children ages 3-4 can accomplish this craft with help from an adult.
