Directions for Use
Wool and other animal protein fibres have quite a lot of variation between species, individual animals, diet, and even the environment they live in.
Fibres with more oil and dirt need more shampoo, fibres with less oil and dirt, need far less. This product is designed as a shampoo, it must be worked into the fibres in order to work.
As with any fibre washing, do not change temperatures or handle the fibres in an aggressive fashion – this can lead to substantial felting and damage to the fibres.
Fibre processing is messy! Please ensure you have an appropriate work area and attire.
- Wet the fibre before application with medium-hot water
- Squeeze out excess water
- Gently massage the shampoo into the fibres
- Leave the shampoo on for 5 to 15 minutes
- Rinse in medium-hot water
After allowing the fibres to drain, check to see that the heavy grease and dirt has been removed. If the fibres are still greasy, crunchy, or tacky, repeat the process.
With the pre-washing process complete, the heavy dirt, oils, and grease removed, you can move on to Wash and Dye in preparation for dyeing.
