Here in the hot pink tropical cave we are keeping nice and warm.
I did take some beautiful photos this morning of a selection of woollen jumpers and brilliant coloured scarves that we have in the shop, but I can't get the whatsit to load onto the thingummy.
So while I struggle with machines of the 21st century I thought I'd take it back to the old school 19th century with a wool wash recipe made from ingredients that can be found in the supermarket -
2 cups of soap flakes or finely grated pure soap
Half a cup of methylated spirits
25ml eucalyptus and/or lavender oil
- Combine ingredients in a wide-mouthed jar
- Shake until everything in combined
- Use 2 tablespoons per litre of warm water to wash, then rinse
Have fun, be warm and bright.
