I recommend this product

A great starter pack

This is a great kit for those, like me, who are curious about processing their own raw fleece. It comes with everything but the wool combs (I highly recommend the Paradise Fiber wool combs). The bottles are fairly large and have more soap than what you need to process the pound of wool that comes with the kit. That is a huge plus for me. A quick word though, if you are not use to the smell of sheep, then processing your own wool may not be for you. This wool has a mild barn/farm animal smell. But not nearly as pungent as I was used to from growing up near sheep farms. But I could see how it would be considered "stinky" to anyone not used to it. I also excepted more plant matter and other debris in the wool. And was pleasantly surprised to find very little considering the raw nature of the wool.
