Whoever knew a few stinky sheep could go such a long way in making so many moms happy. This thread is hilarious!<br>
Sorry about the stinky wool, though. I can't be of any help there.

Just wanted to add that I had one knitted brand new wool item that stunk horribly! I washed it with a ton of "Oh Baby" WOW and it barely made a difference.. it stunk like stinky wool and WOW!<br><br>
I've never had anything come close to that, it filled entire rooms and then some with this horrible smell that was beyond wet dog!<br><br>
I bought it from a big soaker ebay seller and I told her about it too. She promptly gave me a refund and told me I was her first complaint.. whatever. I sold that sucker and told them all about the smell but they wanted it anyway.. sold it off for like $3 or something tiny like that.<br><br>
My advice, get a refund and sell it if the enzyme doesn't work!<br><br>
Oh and none of my wool smells, wet or dry! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I just don't get how the person who sent wool to the original OP and the person who sent to Jenn could not know that this wool smellled awful.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

This is what I'm wondering, too. Maybe the person who made it is just used to the smell of love starved wild monkey musk?<br><br>
Some of my dyed wool smells like sulfur,but it's not horrible and fades away after a few washes. I'm not bothered by personal smells of people I've bought used items from, that washes out and is replaced by our own scent. This is just beyond anything I've ever come across<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

Yep, hence my "whatever" comment.. I just don't see how anyone could not know.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: I even remember my husband asking me what that smell was! lol<br><br>
The only other smelling soaker I've had was my Bumhuggers when it first came and it smelled a bit like vinegar but her invoice said it might and that it would go away after a wash or two which it did. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Also when wool needs to be washed it starts to smell a little earthy but that's it!<br><br>
Those are nothing like those aweful semi-longies.. ICK!

has me rolling.<br><br>
I have never had any "ripe" wool here but I do hate the smell of it wet.<br><br>
This was good to read first thing in the morning after being up all night with 2 DS that were running fevers.

I bought a goose down comfortor once and the first night I slept under it I could have swore I was living on a farm. I got it at Hecht's which is a nice department store, and it wasn't anything all natural. I always wanted to live on a farm so I thought the smell was great. But after that first night I never noticed it again. Then I put it away for a while, and when I put it back on my bed a few months later, I noticed the smell again (just for a night). So the people that sold you this smelly wool probably noticed the smell when they got the fabric, but then the smell "went away" and they thought it had "gone away" and they forgot about it. Fact is, it didn't really "go away" - they just got used to it. If they happen to live on a farm that raises animals, then they may not have even noticed it in the first place. So no, I don't think they intentionally sold you smelly wool.

NO sheep dingleberries in my sweater, I promise. I wear it because its the only 'mom' sweater that I have that goes with everything, is comfy, warm and well, warm!! I'm notoriously cold all the time.<br><br>
--> passing the tp so you can wipe the dingleberries off your soaker...<br><br>
If its really that bad though, you could always send it back to whoever made it for you and ask for a refund. I love raw wool though!! If you decide to sell it instead of return it, let me know and we might be able to chat about a trade.
