washing wool and sensitive skin?

I just got my first pair of longies and am wondering about wool wash. My dd has extremely sensitive skin- we can't use scented lotions, regular detergents or scented fabric softener. I have heard that you want to use scented wool wash and lanolin so it does not have kind of a wet dog smell and was wondering if anyone knows of a good wool wash for extremely sensitive skin and what you would recommend. We are able to use Johnsons soothing naturals baby wash and a baby wash for ezcema but not the head to toe or lavendar wash. Any help would be great. Thanks

I believe they both have unscented all natural lanolin and lanolin soap. I love wool, I hope you enjoy yours. It opens up a whole new diapering world!

Not true at all! Wet wool will often smell like sheep (which some people compare to "wet dog" smell), but it rarely smells like anything when dry (or damp from normal usage). I have used unscented sudz 'n dudz wool wash (liquid and bar) and unscented northern essence (liquid) wool wash with great results... my wool is always fresh and clean after being washed, even without any additional scent. Sudz 'n dudz is also organic, which may even be easier on sensitive skin.
