Washing Woolens

Today was a wool washing day.  I had read this article and was waiting for a fresh soft snow to try to wash one of my wool area rugs.  I have left the rung on the back porch, and think that I will give it another go around tomorrow and really try to work the snow into the fibers more.  I love ideas like these!

And it was also a sock washing day.  I only make socks out of superwash these days, and with it being cold here finally, Dan and I were both running short on handknit socks.  They go into the machine (front loader) on gentle with some mild dish soap, then hung to dry.  This represents 30 pairs!!!!!
