Does the act of scouring wool perplex you? Does your wool felt or not get clean enough? Do you know how to get rid of dirty tips or VM? Do you want to know if your wool is even worth processing? How about what soap to use? Did you know not all soaps are created equal and can actually harm your wool? Do you want to know how to keep locks in order so your wool combing is easier?
In this class you will get hands on lessons in what sound wool is and how to quickly assess wool. In the mini-lab you will test soaps to see if they are the correct soap for scouring wool. Then we get our hands dirty and your wools clean! I will show you a quick and easy way to scour your wool to cut your scouring time in half. All wools provided.
