Can you wash and lanoize wool at the same time?

I have new wool, some Disana and Kissaluvs wool covers that need to be washed and lanoized. Can I do it at the same time, in the same bucket?

I do, as long as they're similar in colour. I've had dye bleed from some of my handknit items that are coloured, so I always wash those on their own.

Yes, washing and lanolizing at the same time is fine to do and will save you some much needed time. When they really get dirty, just make sure you rinse them out under lukewarm running water very well to get any of the yuck out first.
