What is felted soap? Felted soap is soap that is wrapped in felt, eliminating the need for a separate washcloth. This type of soap is generally made by wrapping a bar of soap in wool, then applying water and friction until the wool felts. The felting process typically causes the wool to shrink tightly around the bar of soap. Wool generally has natural antiseptic properties, so felted soap usually remains clean if it is allowed to dry properly after each use. The layer of felting over the soap can usually be reused, and many fans of felted soap simply cut open the empty felt bag after the soap is gone, and put in another bar of soap.
