Wool in the washer that gets clean and not wrecked = :yay: :yay: :yay: The washing is why I steer clear :hide: (except for my own wool sweaters, since I generally don't grub around in them LOL)

Nice! How do you wash them in the washer? I've always used the spin cycle after washing them in the sink but the washer for everything would be a lot faster!

I have an OLD, top loading Maytag washer. I timed the gentle cicle on it and it really only agitates for 4 min total....2 min at the beginning and 2 min at the end.

So I set it to gentle (8min cycle total), warm/cold. I actually used just a bit of Dawn because I had some new to us woolies that I really wanted to make sure were clean. Um...yea, they were gross...but that is a whole dif post! lol

When the machine started to agitate, I counted 10sec, opened the lid and let everything stop. They closed the lid....counted to 10sec....opened and let rest. I repeated for the entire 2 min. Then let them sit. When it was time to agitate again, I did the same thing. Finished with a spin! CLEAN WOOLIES!!! WOOHOOO!!

I even filled the tub again, added my wool wash...agitated for 2 min (above method) and let everything sit. Lanolized with no lano-balls! :)

I did hand knits, machine knits, and interlock. Everything can out great! I think I can justify a wool obsession now. :D


My only nightmare is if I ever get called away and forget that I am washing wool... I think I will only do it when I know DH is around to monitor kiddos. :)
