Add to that an old washing machine that is parked outside my Laundry door and I am set. I have really found that washing a fleece is stress free as long as you keep the water hot and maintain the temperature whilst you are washing and rinsing. Any change in the temp and you risk felting your fleece, but if you work quickly and use plenty of dishwashing liquid in the wash/soak and vinegar in the rinse/soak it really comes up a treat! I now have fluffy fibre with no residual grease.
In a perfect world I would go on to dye it, but if you felt how hot I was, and how hot I looked, you would forgive me for letting it dry and leaving the dying for another day.
