Sherry has been using Eucalan since Claire was in cloth diapers, it's terrific for washing woolies - which is a term of endearment for wool diaper covers. It's nostalgic but it's a terrific product. Though Claire is now a functional adult with a career, Sherry's love of Eucalan still runs deep. It's the go to that we use in our huge batches of fresh from the mill to remove the spinning oils. Sherry's favorite is lavender, Cindy's is Jasmine.
How it works: Just soak your hand knit with a bit of Eucalan in a bowl or sink of room temperature water and squeeze. We tend to soak about 30 minutes. No need to rinse. Lay knits flat to dry. Be sure to block your new hand knits to gauge. Wash sets (like lingerie) together. Test fabric for color-fastness.
