tub soak

Here's the rest of the fleece in the tub. I used some Planet dish soap to reduce the surface tension enough for the fleece to soak.

 

There are two parts to cleaning fleece- removing the dirt and removing the lanolin. Generally this can be done in one or two scouring washes, but for exceptionally dirty fleece it can be helpful to remove most of the dirt in lower temperature washes before starting the high temp scour bath.
