Felted Soaps - NEW from Rocaro Alpacas

 

Their fun & popular bath time buddies.  The inner soap cake is wrapped in a handmade pocket of soft Alpaca wool, in funky variegated colours.  Soap and a wash cloth in one!

 

The felt cover shrinks over time as the soap wears away, keeping it ready for scrubbing.  A great gift on it's own, or tucked in a package or gift basket.  Kids love 'em!
