So. I am a soapmaker who knits, or a knitter who makes soap.. take your pick, they both apply. I began making soap in '86, sold my first bar to a friend in '96, and now I'm taking it to the next level, although by timeline standards I really should have started a website in '06.. what can I say? I'm slow.
Making my own soap sprang from the desire to know what was going ON my body as well as what goes into it. I'm careful about food, some might say picayune.. but I distrust that which I can't pronounce.
Ah.. why Wooly Bear you ask? I am absolutely fascinated by the charm and resilience of the tiger moth caterpillar. It allegedly predicts the weather, it is one of the few creatures in the animal kingdom that can survive being frozen solid, and let's face it, wooly bear caterpillars are damned cute critters.
