WASH SHEEPS WOOL

Hi

does anyone use raw sheeps wool. what's the best way to wash and prepare it for weaving etc please.

I have just made a peg loom and want to make a rug. My friend has a small holding I was thinking of buying a couple of fleeces off him in the spring.

Regards RACHEL

Re: Bleach alternative

I spray the pan every time after flushing with a mixture of citrus and pine oil, just a few drops diluted in water.
