Lanolizing Wool


  


Lanolizing with Bee Green Naturals Woolie Wash Cubes


Here is a quick tutorial on how you can use BGN Woolie cubes to lanolize. You could also cut off a piece of any kind of wool wash bar and these same rules would apply so long as it melted easily enough. Some you might need to use hotter water with, you will just need to test them out. You could also use a liquid wool wash instead of the cubes, it would likely be approx. 1-2 tsp depending on the manufacturer.

 



 

Start with your supplies: 2 wool wash cubes, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon solid lanolin and about 6 oz of hot tap water for 1 item. (6 cubes will emulsify 1 TBS. lanolin as you'll see below). I use as hot as mine will go but a micro is not necessary unless your water heater is set really low.




 



Melt both cubes first, just stir them around or smush them against the side until they are melted, then add your lanolin. The lanolin should only take about a min. to melt. Once done, continue to mix well for about another min. to make sure it's incorporated well.





 



When your done your water should look like this. A nice milky white, reminicent of whole milk.

Fill your basin with water that is a little bit warmer then the lanolin water. I like to put my finger in the lanolin water while filling the basin to make sure they are similar. You DON'T want the basin water cooler, it will cause your lanolin to 'bunch' and seperate.



Add your lanolin water to the basin water while the water is still running. If the temps are right it will look like the picture above with no blobs or yellow floating lanolin.

Allow it too cool if necessary so it is not too hot. This could cause felting on your wool. A nice tepid bath water temp is good.


Add your PRE-WET (you need to make sure you don't add them dry) wool to the water and smush them carefully to get all the lanolin water in the fabric. Just don't be too rough with your wool. :) Allow them to sit at least 15-30 min. to overnight. Typically a few hours is enough.

 

Take them out (no need to rinse) and carefully squeeze excess water out then lay at the bottom of a towel and roll them up.
Some like to put their woolies in the wash for just a soft spin cycle. I haven't tried this but many have had success getting a lot of water out this way.

 

Squeeze the towel to get the excess water out.

 

Open up and lay flat to dry or hang on a clothes dryer.

 

You're done!!!
