Optional Add-on—Felted Soap Workshop
An instructor will teach the students how to make a felted soap and they can take their soap home with them afterwards.
What is felted soap??
Its soap with bright, colourful alpaca wool wrapped around it, the alpaca wool gently exfoliates your skin as you use it and eliminates the need for a loofah or wash cloth. The covering around the soap helps prolong the life of the soap and as alpaca has natural anti-fungal properties it will also retain its freshness. Felted soap is easier to hold than a slippery bar of soap, so its great for kids.
Workshop takes approximately 30 minutes
