Icelandic is not as greasy as some fleeces, so you can just flick open the locks and spin from them.
I usually give mine a single wash in hot water to get rid of most of the lanolin (not all) then comb the locks and spin.
I found Dawn more harsh on the fiber than Suave Clarifying when I did my comparison wash of a fleece. I would maybe use it for a first wash on a fleece that was very high in lanolin. WIHH made a good point - wash your hair in Dawn dishsoap and see if it feels soft or harsh. Of course, our hair is not as greasy as a heavy lanolin fleece. Still, I found that plain old Suave Clarifying was my favorite.
Here is the thread where I did some comparisons, complete with caveat that it was my first attempt at washing a fleece.
Just let me know what the total will be and i will shoot you payment via paypal.
Kasota: I will take a pic today when i get home if there is enough natural light. The picture i took last night looked awful. The feel of this stuff is amazing!! Can't imagine what the lamb ones are like.
