Results post.

This is the post many have asked for.  This is a all-in-one post for the different test batches I have done.  The wool for these experiments was from a cone of sport weight super wash wool.  Each group is sorted into 4 skeins. 
  1. Straight off the cone.
  2. Scored in a wool soap, in cold water.
  3. Put into a cold alum soak.
  4. Both Scored and put in Alum.
