For the second wash (and third wash if necessary) remove the wool from the washer and refill, dissolving the same amount of detergent as in step one, but adding NO ammonia. Submerge the wool for one-half hour before repeating the SPIN cycle. You may repeat this washing step another time.
To rinse the wool,remove the wool from the machine. Refill the washer with HOT water, Replace the wool in the machine. After a one-half hour soak, spin the water out and repeat the cycle for one more rinse or until the rinse water is no longer cloudy. Two rinses are usually enough. Dry the wool on a mesh-type surface which allows air circulation.
It is important NOT to agitate or abruptly change the temperature of wet wool. If either occurs, the wool will become felted (matted) and will be impossible to process further.
