Re: Lanolin wool

The easiest way IMO, would be to buy a wool wash with lanolin in it. You then put enough slightly warmish water in a sink/tub, ect to cover your wool. Put in the wool wash when filling and swish with hand. Put in wool, squeeze wool to get it all wet. Do not agitate. Then you let it sit for a minimum of 15 minutes. I let it sit until the suds are gone, then squeeze out wool, empty sink and repeat but usually leave overnight the second time.
To dry you roll up in a towel and squeeze then lay flat or hang to dry. I just did 10+ longies at once, and had to use all my chairs and every other surface to hang wool. lol It can take over a day to dry.
