Felted Sheep's Milk Soap (and Other New Products)

I've been working very hard over the past few weeks, developing several new lines of products for my Etsy shop. As of today, they're finally ready!

First, there are the Felted Sheep's Milk Soaps. Luscious soap made from the milk of our own sheep, then encased in hand-felted wool to form a natural scrubby, with just the right amount of gentle exfoliation, like a good washcloth. Available in five natural colors: White, Beige, Brown, Gray, and Black. You can buy them individually, or as a collection that includes all five colors.

Next, for the do-it-yourselfers out there, I have Felted Soap Making Kits. Making felted soap is easy and fun! With these kits you get everything you need; all you have to add is a bowl of hot water and about 15 minutes of your time. Included: our wonderful sheep's milk soap, hand-carded Icelandic sheep's wool from our flock, and a set of instructions. Available in five natural colors: White, Beige, Brown, Gray, and Black. Buy a kit for a single bar of soap, or a deluxe kit to make one bar in each of the five colors. Get together with a few friends and host a soap-felting party!

And finally: I'm now offering hand-carded Icelandic Sheep's Wool for felting and needle felting projects. This is the same wool that I use for all of my own needle felting. I shear it myself, wash it by hand, and card it the old-fashioned way, with hand carders. It is available in either 1-oz. or 4-oz. bags (1 oz. is quart-sized, 4 oz. is gallon-sized). Choose a single color, or buy a collection that contains one bag of each of our five colors: White, Beige, Brown, Gray, and Black.

Each bag of wool comes with an information card showing the name and photograph of the specific sheep who provided that wool!
