some wool is just not good for cd's, but you can try extra lanolin.

You also might try wasing it with hair conditioner and then lanolizing. Some wool will be scratchy no matter what you do, but other wool is just REALLY dried out and will feel better once you super condition it.

Thanks! It's a recycled pair of longies that feel alittle scratchy to me. I'll try washing with conditioner and then lanolizing.

Thanks!
