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.

Product Reviews
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."
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.
My new favorite soap
I picked this soap because of the number of 4+ star reviews and I have to say it exceeded my very high expectations. Left my face nice and smooth and smells amazing. A lot of people say that they have trouble getting a good lather my trick with this is i brush a little water on the top then get all of my gear ready. I get leave my brush moderately wet and then work the soap somewhat gently and it works up a nice thick lather. Make sure you use this puck on a regular basis so it stays moist this will help you making a lather.
I like it. Great protection
This is my go to soap right now. I was into the scented stuff for a little while but you can only take so much smell! jajajaj. This is a wonderfully manufactured soap that offers top notch protection and it's truly unscented. It lathers real nice and feels good on my face. I was having problems lathering it at first but then i learned that you just turn the soap upside down and the brush gets REALLY loaded in a matter of about 20 seconds. I can't say i loved it at first or even thought it was special but slowly and surely this soap began to grow on me and now is the only soap i WANT to use. I still have others that i HAVE to finish so i use them, but the scents are sometimes too overwhelming where this one is a constant good felling and natural smelling soap with great protection.
