    Hey there, I’ve heard you mention sheep’s wool a couple times and as I gathered it’s for blisters but could you possible explain to me or show me on a video how exactly it works and how to put it on. This is just for future reference for when I do my camino. Thanks in advance.

    You place the sheep’s wool between the hot spot and the sock.

    The will provides a cushion as well as moisturizing effect.

    Don’t use any tape. The wool binds into the sock.

    Use before blister has formed. Do not use on broken skin.

    I added a post on Foot Care. ..
