Wool Disaster

So I bought 1kg of unwashed wool 2 years ago, and tried to get it clean, that is get most of the lanolin out of it, I thought I had succeeded, but when I pulled this project out of the cupboard from 1 year ago, it still feels all sticky, so it has to go.  I hate throwing away anything that I have put so much work into, but I have very little chance of getting the lanolin out now.  Oh well, better luck with the next batch.

Keep smiling

Yes done that. Didn't work. Don't worry haven't put it in the bin yet. I won't give up. Maybe I will try and felt it.
