would this work?

I have a friend who wants me to try making some pull up trainers...I was planning on putting PUL or something in the inner layer for water proofing, but she wants me to put wool interlock on the outside...there'd be flannel or something absorbent on the inside.

Why question is - how would you wash, or care, for this? Is it even possible? Wool interlock cannot be machine washed, right? And needs lanolin and such...while the flannel should be washed and what would the lanolin do to it? kwim?

What do you think?

I hope someone else will chime in here, but I'm not sure that wool interlock can't be machine washed.

I'm not sure about that either (I have my first wool shorties on their way in the mail ) - I was just assuming they'd have to be cared for like regular wool, but maybe I'm wrong!

I know there is wool yarn available that can be machine washed (superwash, I think it's called) and it seems to me that there is a wool fabric that can be, too.
