Well, looking at all the fleece from the alpacas I decided to have a bit of fun.
I took roughly 5gms of alpaca fleece and carefully wrapped it round a piece of my soap. Gently wetting it, whilst moving it ever so slightly. I end up with this:
|Kris' white fleece was wrapped first, and then|
Miranda's brown fleece got marbeled on top. I
love the end result.
When Rae & Dino came to visit, I gave her a bar of the felted soap. In her subsequent e-mail to me she wrote :
"Somehow you just can't imagine washing yourself with wool wrapped soap but after a second or two it develops a lovely lather and I think because the fibres are so fine, my skin felt positively buffed and smooth, soft as anything afterwards. Great soap too Dani!" (Thanks Rae - the soap is good because you were so incredibly generous to send me a soap recipe all those years ago :) )
