Come join us for a class in soap felting. Students will learn to wet-felt carded fleece from the alpacas at Montrose Farms onto a 3-5 oz. bar of goat milk soap.
Goat milk soap is moisturizing; its high fat content hydrates the skin, with a pH balance of fatty acids similar to those in humans. It’s a great soap for people suffering from acne, eczema, dry or sensitive skin.
Felted soap produces luxurious lather while the fiber coating gently exfoliates the skin. Because it’s like having a wash cloth wrapped around your soap, it eliminates the need for a bath sponge, washcloth or loofa. The fleece coating makes it easier to hold onto, so this is a great soap to use in the shower, or for children and people with arthritis.
The fiber also makes the soap last longer, and because alpaca fiber is naturally anti-microbial, the soap will stay fresh.
Popular with gardeners and mechanics, felted soap can be used in the shower, at the kitchen sink – anywhere you want a little something extra. The attractive soaps are conversation-starters in guest baths and make wonderful gifts.
This class is appropriate for almost any age and skill level. All materials will be provided.
