This is an older article but has terrific information so I thought I'd highlight it today!

How To Lanolize Wool...Without Lanolin Spots!


How do you know if your cover needs lanolizing?

When you wash it, press it into the water. Look for the following signs:

  • If wool sits on top of the water and has little pools of water gathering on top - it does not need lanolizing.
  • If wool sits on top of the water and has some pools and some areas that absorbed water without assistance - it could use a good lanolizing soon.
  • If wool sinks and saturates completely - it is time to lanolize.

Now here's how to lanolize without those pesky lanolin spots. I've been very thorough, so there are quite a few pictures. Have fun!

So, maybe it's just me, I am sleep deprived and without caffine, but I don't see where in the article you lanolize?
I got a wonderful lesson on washing, then step 13, where you tell me to locate my lanolin and mixing jar..... then it ends? Help, I'm here with some nice clean wool, set aside as you told me, and I don't know what to do?! ;)
