Felted Soap

Fiat Luxe Felted Soaps - Anthropologie

These felted soaps at Anthropologie have always caught my eye. Have you been to their store to see the huge basket filled with these beautifully colored soaps covered in felted wool? They would add such a unique touch to a guest bathroom: a couple of them on top of a basket of white towels?, search felted soap for a large selection of these handcrafted items.

I have always wondered how they were crafted. On YouTube, I found this:

This project seems easy enough. With some nice bars of soap, colorful wool batting and a washboard, you can make your own? Anyone know where I can find a washboard?

Have you ever made any felted wool items, i.e. ornaments, scarves, pillows, or even felted wool soaps? Please share the details, I would love to know more. Thanks so much!
