How do you get them out? I can't believe wool would be so popular if it was ruined with just one stain, so there must be a secret. Or maybe it's a difference between breastmilk poop and formula poop (I make less than half what the boy needs even after trying all of the remedies so we supplement). Help!

I heard a mamma used zout but I'm too chicken. I use a wool wash bar from www.sudzndudz.com and it's gotten out everything so far. It even lightened a pooh stain that I couldn't get out with other wool washes.

I've heard wool was bars are the best.

As soon as Dh gets paid we'll be getting one to try it for sure. HTH

I've sprayed solids out of the wool with a kitchen sink sprayer- it also lightened the stain. I use a bit of baby wash (J&J or similiar) then washed with a wool bar and lanolized as normal.

I've done this with a few wool covers. I make sure they're really damp (almost wet) and check them often (yes, I'm paranoid - I do NOT want to bake my Little Fishy covers! ). If need be, I mist them with plain water to keep them damp long enough for the stain to disappear.

I thought that was a no no - that it would shrink wool. Did I make that up? Maybe the keeping it wet thing the other poster suggested is what keeps it from shrinking?

Anyway, thanks to all for the suggestions on wool bars, especially the free shipping one (I'm a sucker for free shipping). I've been using Eucalan, but it's leaving stains, so I'll try the bar.

You can use Zote soap. It is gentle. I used it on some wool covers that had poop staining. It is really cheap, in the detergent aisle.

Nope, the sun won't shrink wool. The danger is that hand-dyed wools can fade in the sun, especially with repeated, prolonged exposure. So you don't put your lovely colorways out to dry on the line every single week, but to sun out a stain once in a while, or to quick-dry a soaker, you can do it. I've been known to dye yarn in the AM, hang it out on the line to dry in the sunshine, and start knitting with it that afternoon/evening.

HTH.
