Fiber and Soap


My goodness, where has the time gone? The past few weeks have been extremely busy for myself as I increase my focus with my business website. It’s natural skin care products. I originally became interested in natural skin care products when I was a teenager and in my twenties, I started making my own skin care line, just for me, 23 years later and I’m still making my own products.

Earlier this week, while browsing a soaping forum, one of the soapers mentioned that she used alpaca fiber in her soaps? Seriously? I’ve heard of silk fiber being used in soap. From my readings, it changes the bubbles, but I’ve never heard of alpaca fiber being used. I have several pounds of alpaca fiber, and I must say that I’ll be tempted to try it out for myself, after I do a bit more research. Interesting how fiber creeps into so many other handcrafts, right?

Oat milk & Honey soap

Here’s my lastest cold process soap. It’s Oat Milk & Honey soap. It’s a new recipe that I’ve created, but I’m loving the feel of it already. Once it’s cured (about six weeks from now) I look forward to receiving feedback from my testers.


  1. That soap looks good enough to eat! I have never tried making soap. It looks fun.

    It is! I enjoy it immensely. I’ll be making a large batch of cold processed soap later today. They’re calling for snow Tuesday morning. We might be getting a lot. That would be nice. 🙂
