    Hi everyone! My name is Caroline and I am a total newbie here.

    Lanolin Wool Wash Bar Soap

    I found a few recipes that I think could work, but might need some guidance from you guys here: A beard shampoo : I like that there is Jojoba oil in this one and wonder if I could add lanolin in phase A to add more emollient, in which case I'm not sure what to remove to add say 10% lanolin A...

    Hello!

    Amazing story and thank you! I wanted to start by knitting baby clothes initially and quickly realised that it would be a difficult business due to how long making each garment would take and then I’d have to price them quite high, but fell in love with dyeing! And now so obsessed with learning...
