I currently use Eucalan but heard there are some wool washes with a higher lanolin content. Can you recommend something?<br><br>
Thank you!

I like WOW <a href="http://www.naturalsimplicity.net" target="_blank">www.naturalsimplicity.net</a> and Doodlebottoms wool wash <a href="http://www.doodlebottoms.com" target="_blank">www.doodlebottoms.com</a> I have had gret results with both. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I've been using Eucalan as the "base" (aka bubbles <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> ) of the wool washing routine. Then I make up some nice lanolin w/ hot water and a dab of baby shampoo to pour directly through the wet zone when I want to give a boosted lanolin treatment to the wool.

I've had good luck with WOW, Doodlebottoms and LAMB (I got this at Soft Cloth Bunz). If you can wait, I think that Natural Simplicity is having a 30% off sale (someone posted about it yesterday . . I think the code is HOLIDAY??) but she won't ship till after the holiday. You could get some great smelling WOW cheap!

I love Kookaburra. I only use Eucalan when I am initially lanolizing but for washing its Kookaburra all the way <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I second (or third...whatever!) WOW. Great scents, works wonderfully, and with NS's Eezi-Lanolin, I don't even hate washing wool anymore.

Here's another vote for Natural Simplicity's WOW and EeZee Lanolin spray. I am absolutely in love with the Spiced Plum scent <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I have a WOW bar in apple/pear that I LOVE! And I have WOW liquid wash in spiced tangerine that is yummy also! The WAHM at Natural Simplicity included a sample bar of Gingerbread that is so yummy smelling...very holidays! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> My wool gets nice and clean...and it smells yummy too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Thanks for the NS coupon code!! I just went and bought another bottle of WOW (tutti fruity scent to try) and EeZee lanolin (Spiced Plum <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> , I'm afraid to try any other scent for fear of disappointment - I love the spiced plum sooooooo much <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> )

I like Kookaburra too. so easy, everythin gis nicely disolved (no lanolin flakes) as a matter of fact I use my Doodlebottom bottle (now empty) with its extra stuck lanolin flakes full of Kookaburra (which I buy by the gallon) for all my wool and down comforters too(figure some of the extra lanolin disolves each time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">)

OK, in order to avoid a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hyena.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hyena"> stampede and be in dust and not get my wash, I have placed my order for Doodlebirds with free shipping til Christmas and 10% off! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
