I've googled this, and so it seems like you get half a cup of water hot, add a pea sized amount of lanolin,mix it dissolved, then a squirt of baby soap. Sound about right? Also, can I lanolize by just rubbing some lanolin in the wet zone?

That's for lanolising. You can get soluble lanolin on ebay and Etsy, and with that, you just add a tiny bit to the washing water, using a delicate washing detergent or wool wash, and it makes a lanolising wool wash. Or you can use it for a full lanolising treatment. I think you'd have a problem trying to rub lanolin direct, as it is incredibly sticky stuff LOL :)
