Olivia's Olive Oil Felting Soap

  • Olivia's Olive Oil Felting Soap

Description

From the Mediterranean comes this 100% Pure Olive Oil Soap ideal for wet and nuno felting techniques. We like to use olive oil soap when wet-felting because it is gentle on the hands while at the same time helps open up the wool fibers assuring their quick and thorough wetting. This can reduce the time needed to felt so there's less chance of your design shifting during the felting process. Great for sensitive skin.

Simply chop or grate some soap then mix with water to create your own easy-to-make slippery felting soap solution, see recipe below. 

One bar, 150 gram.

Olive Oil Felting Soap Recipe

  • 1 cup pure olive oil soap grated, chopped or cut into thin shards with a sharp knife
  • 1 quart hot water

Pour the hot water over the soap bits and stir or whisk gently dissolving the soap completely. Store the slimy, syrupy solution in a jar for 3 to 4 weeks taking small amounts from the jar to make a soapy water for felting. You want the soapy felting water to feel slippery so test as you add the solution to know when you've added enough.
