ATR uses 100% Canadian wool roving to felt their soaps.
Felted soap is similar to a soap and a washcloth in one. The wool acts like a gentle exfoliator for your skin. The wool covering helps to extend the life of your bar, enabling you to use every last bit, and makes it easier to grip in the bath or shower. It is also great for helping to increase lather in all natural soaps. Wool also has natural anti-microbial properties and eliminates soap “slime”.
The wool will shrink at the same rate as the soap, until you are just left with a little piece of wool. This makes a great cat toy, can be used in cleaning, put your favorite essential oil on it and use it to naturally freshen dresser drawers, or it is fully compostable.
