A really good thread. As someone who enjoys lathering up I am enjoying reading tutorial and responses. I was taught to lather by my grandmother. Her stepdad had a barber shop in London back in the early 1900s. As a young girl it was her job to prepare lather pots every day. She showed me how to lather so that I would not pick up what she called my Grandfather’s bad habits. It has stood me in good stead. Even to this day when I prepare my lather I think of her.
