Another wool lanolising question

I can't seem to get this right!
I always end up with beads of lanolin floating on the surface which i have read is a bad thing, and which leads to patchy lanolising.
How can i get the white milkyness and no beads? Have tried shaking, stiring, whisking (yes really!) but i still get the damn beads!

What do you lanolise with? You could dilute the lanolin or wool cure in a small container first with a small amount of hot water so it hopefully dissolves more evenly and then add it to the rest of the water.

Yep thats what I'm doing - squirt of lanisoh in a jar, boiling water, give it a shake until mixed in then add it to the lukewarm water. Thats when it forms beads instead of going milky...

You need to add a squirt of baby bath or something to make it emulsify.

Yup, baby bath or shampoo tis what is needed

Oh yes, I have been using that too blush forgot that part! Maybe a bigger squirt is what is required...
