Talk to me about lanolin:)

Postby malina » Sun Aug 29, 2010 12:31 pm

Not sure if that a right place, but anyway: have to buy one by tomorrow! woolies are screaming to be lanolised :wink:
And is so much choice out there i got a bit lost.
Liquid or solid? much difference?
I know i want scented one :wink:
Which of them do like most? which of them stays longer?

I'm not asking how to do it, i mean to lanolise, i think i know :wink: I;ve seen that done once to mine woolies but it was boring solid unsented one :giggle:
I wanted to get one from knitterarty but there is only calendula at the moment.

Also: I;m washing them in baby shampoo. Is that really bad or i'd better buy something special?

well, i ditched my flips covers for good and got all new world waiting out there. A bit scary, sometimes :wink:

I highly recommend this site for buying lanolin http://www.woolishouswoolcare.co.uk/, I got my first lanolin from there in monkey farts - very fruity and yummy.
I am a bit of a novice but got the solid lanolin and the woolwash both in monkey farts to match. It was super easy to do. The hardest thing is picking which smell to get! :)

I like Woolishous too - not sure about the new site but on the old one you can get discontinued scents for only £2.75 for 50ml :wink:

I have found though that you need to use quite a bit of their solid lanolin (1/2 - 1 tsp) to get a good effect, so I don't think the solid is any more economical than liquid. I've used both and like them both. :D
