    I love to process fleece. I use Unicorn Power Scour. It’s the best in my opinion. If possible I prefer to keep the lock structure intact. I accomplish this by washing in small batches in lingerie bags. I live in Miami so the fleece is always put out to dry on screens in the sun. This is a great giveaway! Thanks😊

    I love using lingerie bags too. Keeps everything neat and tidy for combing or flicking later. Its lovely to see the clean fleece laid out on a old screen when it’s all done. Ready for ideas!!!!

    I like to use lingerie bags for washing fleece as well. Keeps the fibers from escaping and lets vm and dirt out. I also use blue Dawn and very hot water. I’ve only tried a couple of breeds and would love the chance to give the sample pack a try. What an excellent idea to learn more about different, new breeds!
