Image of Felted Soap Cozy With Cable

These soap cozies are an ingenious way to make your soap last longer. Simply sew a bar of soap inside, and the cozy felts as you use it. Since Fishermen's Wool comes in big skeins, you can make multiple cozies as a wonderful party (or even wedding) favor!

Felted Soap Cozy With Cable Reviewed by Ann Seligman on 2014-04-20 ****
I made a few of these to learn cable, and am now working on a lovely cable scarf, pattern #80755AD, but using Heartland Isle Royale wool. When I finish mine, it moves to the kitchen as a sponge/scrubber, though I’d be curious to cut it and see it refelt! But it shrank enough that I doubt the same size bar would fit. Never had an issue with any smell of wet wool or scratchiness. Love the idea of a handwarmer, and goodness knows we could have used some of that this winter! Now I’m going to try making one with double-moss stitch, just because I think it’s pretty. Next time I'll take a picture before using or giving it away.
