We talk a lot about carding and combing and rolags and top, but the first step in any of those prep processes is cleaning that fleece. And an important step it is, too: leave any grease or dirt (or soap!) in the wool and you will regret it with every stroke of the card or comb.

This collection of gems from Spin-Off’s archives is full of how to wash wool techniques, from low-tech and easy to painstaking and labor-intensive. What all the articles have in common (besides a certain patina—these are oldies-but-goodies and don’t have the same design as our current issues) is a focus on getting each prized fleece from stinky to spectacular.

Before you head to a wool show or click the "buy" button on your next fleece, read the words of wisdom from our panel of experts. You may find them not in perfect agreement on some points... so you will have to try out their methods and see for yourself. (Please note that this may call for more than one fleece. We know that's a terrible prescription.)
