Wool Washing Experiment

25. August 2008 08:45 by Jobo | 0 Comments

I was lucky enough to get some free wool (Romney I think, and some Leicester) donated by Trevor Richardson, one of my inlaws who farms sheep over in Nova Scotia.


1. Raw, smelly, about 20 lbs worth packed into a feed bag.

2. After washing.... mucho dishsoap and hot water baths.  The tips are still a bit yellowed,

    but overall, a definite improvement, dont you think? 


3. Finished poof of washed wool.  Doesn't even smell that bad anymore!

   (too bad there's about 99 % of that bag left... I wasn't brave enough

    to wash much more than 2-4 ounces the first time)
