Now place the bar into a stocking, making sure it is tight around the soap disallowing the soap or fibers to move. Work it under running hot water as the soap comes through the stocking. You want the fibers and the soap to become one. A lot of agitating is needed!
This tray is out of sequence and blogger is not cooperating today. These soaps that have been wrapped and are ready to be felted. The roving to the right is the different types I used...
Now you have your felted soaps. Set them some where they can dry. I rotate them and turn them over the next day. I also will change the towel they are on. Remember sometimes the dyed fibers bleed so make sure it's a towel that is more of a rag.
Once your soaps are dry, you can work on embellishing them. Using a felting needle, tuck any pieces that may be hanging or not just right. I usually use alpaca fiber for this to give a soft texture. You can do anything, hearts, cancer ribbons, swirls or just about anything, get creative!
