Three SIMPLE INGREDIENTS
grab your wool and let's get started
Three Simple Ingredients
Lanolin – we find solid works best
Emulsifier – we make some really great Blocks
Water – we recommend distilled
10 Handmade Emulsion pre-cut cubes in a bag to refill a container.
Our Bumby Wool Solution Emulsifying Blocks are hand crafted in our workshop. We saponify food grade oils and fats, creating a luscious soap that lightly bubbles and emulsifies lanolin, as well as can be used to make a wool wash solution.
We only use the best quality Fragrance Oils (FO) and Essential Oils (EO) in our products. Many customers really like yummy smells, so we have launched scented fragrance oils as well. Please note that these oils do change the colour of the blocks. Some have a mild beige colour and some are quite deep brown. This doesn’t effect the function in any way, and is fairly standard.
Method of use below
Machine wash wool?
Doesn’t that sound like a dream? Well lets make it a reality. We have partnered with Unicorn Laundry Care products because they are the best product I have found for our wool. Find a retailer near you or in our shop.
Our wool is thick and soft and likes to hold fluid. Which means it will hold onto soap and detergent unless it is rinsed and washed well. So we highly recommend using not only very little soap, but also to rinse well.
Unicorn Beyond Soft in a natural Fabric Conditioner. It helps keeps the fibers soft and healthy.
Step 1 Dissolve 1 TBSP of Unicorn Beyond Clean in some water
Step 2 Add wool to your washing machine
Step 3 Add dissolved detergent to the dispenser
Step 4 Turn on washer to Cool setting (use wool setting or lower spin)
Do a secondary rinse cycle, aka rinse and spin with pre-dissolved Beyond Soft Conditioner.
We also recommend doing this every so often to refresh your wool between washes. It removed light soiling and neutralized salts
