Wool wash bar recipe?

I've been doing soapmaking for a year or so now and realized it would be easy to make our own wool wash bars too. However, I can't find a recipe to help me know how much lanolin to put in.

I'd like a recipe that adds lanolin at trace and then doesn't require any further shredding or rebatching. Can anyone help me????

Thank you!

Just out of curiosity (and perhaps I'll just have to make my own to find out), since this bar is touted as a "skin moisturizing bar," does anyone know if this small amount of lanolin would be sufficient for use as a wool wash?

Thanks, mamas!

I don't think it would. I can't find a recipe anywhere, even on my soaping forum. Maybe I'll mess around and try to devise one.
