Washing my Disana wool?

Am I better off to do this in my sink or can I use the delicate cycle in my machine? I have the Disana wool shampoo to use also.

I think you have to do it in the sink. I think that's what the instructions say otherwise you run the risk of felting and shrinking. I just filled the sink up with the recommended amount of wool wash and let it soak for about 20 minutes then dabbed it with a towel and let it sit overnight under our kitchen fan

I always was mine in the sink because I'm afraid it will get all out of shape in the machine. I've heard of mamas washing on delicate though. Maybe I'm just a chicken

Re: Washing my Disana wool?

I just washed mine on delicate last night. Problem is you still need to lanolize so may as well almost handwash it anyway. Not sure how you would lanolize in the washing machine. So I'm going to have to do that all again tonight anyhow. It did say not to soak it so I just let it go through the regular gentle cycle. Came out looking the same. No shrinking or felting. I used cool but not cold water.
