* Felted Soap is a washcloth and soap all in one! Felting the soap helps with longevity, lather and exfoliation. Felted soap dries out faster after each use, preventing the natural glycerin from dissolving as quickly. This makes the bar of soap last longer for you to enjoy. The felting also helps with the grip on the soap. It is easier to handle and hold onto. Felted soap is perfect for traveling and there is no need for a travel soap case! The felt will diminish at the same rate as the soap. The wool is anti-fungal and may be continued to be used after the soap is gone inside. We use 100% wool roving.
