washing fleece for spinning

  1. I have some wool from our flock tht I wish to spin. I'm ready to wash the fleeces but I'm not sure of what soap to use. Does anyone have a suggestion of a brand of soap I should use. Thanks

    I use Dawn. Dump a bit in the water, then stick the fleece in to soak. Dump the soapy water, put fleece back in fresh water, several times, until satisfied.

    I too must wash some wool I plan to use my dishwashing soap too. I've always had good luck with that. It is a very time consuming job but fun none the less. I plan to wash and card my wool and then make it into a bed pillow. I'm waiting
    for a nice warm spring day. Good luck and have fun!!
