Wool wash bar - made in the UK
Washing and wet blocking your woollens really helps to finish your project off and you would be surprised by how much dirt comes out when you do wash them!
Frustrated with only finding wool wash that was being imported from Canada and the US, I set about trying to find a UK source for wool wash. I was also determined to find wool wash bars rather than a liquid. A bar is easier to post and far less likely to arrive damaged and it offers much greater value for money.
There are no 'bits' in these bars, they are smooth and you only need to lather them for 10 seconds or so before you have dispersed enough soap in your water. Any more than that and you will make the water sticky with the lanolin - these really are very economical bars.
Scent & ingredients
The scent of this bar is bespoke to KNIT IT - HOOK IT - CRAFT IT and is called 'After the Rain' because it smells like a scented garden straight after a rain shower.
Each bar is made from UK grown rapeseed oil and Jersey cow's milk. Maria who makes these bars (and owns the Jersey cows) uses fragrances of lavender, chamomile and garden herbs.
Two options are available for these wool wash bars - with or without lanolin and in a full-size bar (includes bag packaging and has an approximate weight of 50g) and trial size bar with minimum packaging (25g approximate weight).
Lanolin is a fat that occurs naturally in the wool of sheep to keep the rain out. By using the lanolin wool wash bar, you are adding lanolin back into your finished object and helping to recondition it.
After use, the wool wash bar should be dried or drained.
WeightEach full bar has a minimum weight of 50g and trial bars have a minimum weight of 25g.
Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating
This product is manufactured in England.
Postage and Packaging
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.
I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with potentially inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
