Wool mama's , help !!

I lanolized my first pair of Arsitocrats (sp) and I dont think that the lanolin was dissolved enough because now I have spots on them . How do you get those out ? Will they disappear as they dry ? Are they ruined ? UGH I did everything by the instructions .

If the spots are still there you can strip them off my adding some dawn to a sink of warm water and letting the soaker sit in it for about 15 minutes
Then rinse it in warm water making sure to be gentle to avoid felting it

Will I have to relanolize them? Will the dawn strip it completely ?

Re: Wool mama's , help !!

there is a chance the lanolin spots may not come out, always lanolize your wool inside out to help prevent spots.

That's a good tip - I am relatively new to wool and hadn't thought of that.

I have a few lano spots on my crats...but I've never really worried about it, b/c I only use them for night...but I appreciate the dawn tip I wonder if a wool wash bar might help too?? Or would that just make it worse? LOL

The wool wash bar won't make it worse but it has lanolin in it too so it won't get rid of lan stains.
