Quick! Lanolin?

Okay, I have several screens open right now. I am ordering wool wash and lanolin. I have decided to get a Summer Nights bar from ITS and then 6 1/2oz samples from Northern Essences.

I want to order lanolin, too, but I can't figure out where I should get it from. ITS or NE? I need to make this decision quickly, because I keep changing my mind about scents and I'm driving myself crazy! I need to just go ahead and order!

ITS is much better IMHO...its more spreadable. i found NE lanolin to be real tacky and HARD to spread!

Re: Quick! Lanolin?

I LOVE the lanolin from NE, because they have a greater selection of lanolin types (solid, liquid, spray). And, lots of sizes and scents to choose from.

Also, yes, the NE solid lanolin is not as spreadable, but it's not intended to be so.....It's not a balm, it's solid lanolin, designed to be disolved/emulsified in hot water and then added to the basin to soak into the wool. I think a lot of people misunderstand that and are trying to compare apples to oranges. I also find the NE lanolin to last longer as it's used, then my ITS balm (which I use more of per soaker, by rubbing it into my palms before applying to the wool.)

I do like the ITS balm though for those "in between" extra lanolization.....but if I'm washing and lanolizing, then definately the NE.

Hope that helps.
