Felted Moose/Deer Soap
These felted soaps are a collaboration between Phyllis Heeney and myself. Phyllis makes the soap using the fat from either deer or moose. After the soaps are cured for 4 weeks they are ready to be felted. The felting process involves wrapping each soap with wet sheep's wool. I massage each bar until the wool has felted. This thin wool coat helps soap last longer, and makes slippery bars easier to hang on to. The wool is very gently exfoliating, and can replace a washcloth or bath pouf in the shower. Wool is also naturally antimicrobial, so there is no problem with keeping the bar in a wet shower environment.
