felting soap
Has anyone felted soap using roving? How much roving do you need for a regular size bar? I want to try this with my boys for Christmas gifts.
Thanks,
Lindsey

Felted soap? I'm not sure I understand what you're asking.

Never heard of it before, but I found these sites:

It does appear you can use roving.
