Exactly how do I lanolize my wool?

Mix ¼ tsp of lanolin,and a few drops of dish soap with a cup or so of water in a small container.Stir until the lanolin is dissolved.The water will be milky white.

In your sink or a medium size container put a gallon of lukewarm water.(You do not want to use cold or hot water for your wool.) Add the lanolin mixture into the medium container with the water and then add your wool.Gently mix until the wool is saturated and then let it soak for 15-20 minutes.

After your wool is done soaking,gently squeeze to remove most of the water.Roll up in a towel to remove more water and then hang or lay flat to dry!

The lanolin and water measurements are all approximate! It is not something you have to be *exact* with!

We hope you enjoy your wool as much as we enjoy ours!
