Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap was first produced in the early 1930's by Bradford chemist Fred Mitchell who realized that the natural lanolin content of wool fat, which kept the hands of local sheep shearers and wool sorters so exceptionally soft, could also be beneficial to delicate complexions and sensitive skins. A simple and natural product, Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap is still made to Mr. Mitchell's original formula, based on a recipe from the turn of the century and incorporating lanolin from the wool fat as the key ingredient. This gentle and soothing shaving soap is especially suitable for sensitive skin. Natural lanolin from sheep's wool keeps the skin soft.

Size: 125g/4.4oz; 75 mm diameter X 27 mm height

Made in England.

Great performer day after day!
<p>This came recommended to me after having some problems with some artisan soaps. Man, what a great recommendation to say the least! This soap makes cream easily and then applies to the face and neck with such a creamy texture that you know your shave will be legendary! It holds for a long time as well. The lanolin content really makes for a super slick glide of the razor &lt; provided your razor is shave ready. I can't say enough of this soap and it is surely a staple in my cabinets!</p>

I will keep this in my rotation.
<p>MWF was my first shaving soap. Thought it was good until I tried others. I really like the mild scent. Makes the skin feel nice after the shave. But for me it doesn't offer the best shave or protection.</p>

Best of the best
Simply stated, MWF is the best shaving soap available today. Like it or not, MWF is the soap against which all others are compared. Slickness, glide, cushion and post shave quality are second to none. The scent is mildly soapy, and won't clash with your aftershave. If you haven't tried this shaving legend, disregard its undeserved difficult lathering reputation and pick up a puck -- just be prepared to make a permanent spot in your rotation for "The Fat."

Overrated...
This soap was a major letdown because it is so popular yet so mediocre in actual use. I really wanted to like this stuff. I shave exclusively with a straight razor. I need a lot of slickness and have heard that it doesn't get slicker. To my surprise, even after giving this soap at least 2 dozen tries in an attempt to dial it in I have yet to experience said slickness. The slickness is about average. The cushion is also well BELOW average. The only area this soap impresses is in the post shave which feels nice and natural, and even there I find that a number of other soaps do a better job. Overall I just don't get this stuff, but I would encourage anyone to at least try it like I did to develop their own opinion.

MWF - A Must-Have Soap
<p>MWF was my first soap, and after countless others - still one of my favorites. Nothing else I've tried provides quite the same face feel and moisturizing properties as this stuff. The scent is also unique; light and fresh. It provides a lovely lather (at least if your water isn't too hard) that's stable and slick and gives a nice, close shave. I will always have a puck on hand - it's one of the must-haves.</p>

It's a fine product. Like others better though.
Tried this soap on account of the high praise offered here. It's just OK. I've experienced some of the lathering issues others have cited, and find a boar brush produces a better face lather than a badger. I'm glad I tried it, but I'll stick with Proraso, which is slicker and more soothing to my face (51-year-old greying beard attacked daily with a SE razor). The Mitchell's hasn't provided a bad shave by any means; I just prefer other products.
