Scrumble Hot Process Soap
Moist apple & blueberry coffee cake topped with oaty cinnamon streusel & a twist of yarn
With the passing of summer comes the welcome chill of autumn, when holding a lap full of bulky merino wool suddenly seems like a wonderful idea again: it's KNITTING SEASON. Or my personal favorite, CROCHETING... Whether you hook or needle, fall is the perfect time to craft, & crafting is always better with friends. Scrumble is a delicious tribute to my Chicago Stitch-&-Bitch crew & our hours spent monopolizing coffee house couches & trying not to get crumbs in our knitting. It smells of moist vanilla cake studded with fruit, crumbly oats, cinnamon, & a touch of wool - sweet & comforting & undeniably cozy. Ch2, yarn over, insert through back loop, yarn over, pull through, yarn over, pull through all three loops, repeat til end of row...
This listing is for one (1) 5+ounce bar of hot process soap, made from scratch by me in my own workshop. If you find glycerin soaps a bit too drying, this is the bar for you. I've spent several months developing a coconut- & shea-free, vegan formula that lathers beautifully & is packed with nourishing vegetable oils & butters. I make my hot process soap in small batches, & allow each batch to cure for 3 weeks to ensure a firm, mild bar. Each hand-cut bar measures 3x3x1 inches, & weighs approximately 5.5 ounces.
As always, your soap will arrive hand-wrapped in cellophane, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Water, Olive Oil, Organic & Sustainable Palm Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Organic Palm Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Fragrance Oil, Sugar, Gluten-Free Organic Oats, Cinnamon, Mica, Ultramarines
Since I work in small batches, you may notice slight variations in color from bar to bar. Hot process soap has a marbled, natural appearance. Streaks, swirls & blobs are all part of the charm, & in no way affect the quality of your soap :)
