Historically, many pharmacopoeias have referred to lanolin as wool fat


Mr edge, I took the liberty of ammending your post to provide substance to the discussion as oppose to just snarkiness.

Thank you for your contributions.

To the others, it does appear you are correct, after further reading and discovering lanolin is commonly referred to as wool fat, it does make sense. I took the reference to wool being a reference to sheep, hence mutton tallow

I think you jumped the gun. I responded genuinely to your (seemingly unrhetorical) question concerning branding.

If you meant that as genuine, I do apologize, it can be difficult interpreting that over a forum. I'm glad we have everything corrected as for the name and origin.

I took a sample puck of Stirling Electric Sheep for a spin today and was pleased with the results.  In my opinion, the Stirling tallow and lanolin formula is solid while this shave with their mutton tallow formula exceeded it by just a hair.  Face lather started off with rich pasty suds.  A little water and some brushing led to a nice wet lather with a sheen.  In terms of looks and face feel, it reminded me a little of a Mickey Lee Soapworks type of performance.  The scent is a citronella bomb which I personally enjoy but I could see it being a little polarizing.  So far the post shave feels splendid.  I'm a fan.

I also have a sample of the Electric Sheep. I must say that its performance has me very impressed. I love the scent and the way the lather works up. It also leaves my skin feeling well-moisturized and comfortable.
