Re: Odd smell, weird stains
It looks like lanolin build up to me, could have happened the first time they were prepped either by the seller or the biz. I'd suppose that you are allergic to whatever wool wash was used on them prior and unfortunately you're stuck. Soaking them in cold water and dawn and lots of rinsing should help.
